The Strong Stance: Outing Post-Transition

Episode Summary

Outing Post-Transition: Last week, ESPN's Grantland ran an article about trans golf-club inventor Essay Anne Vanderbilt (Dr. V). The lengthy article used her trans identity to sensationalize the story; and, Dr. V committed suicide in the midst of the writer researching the story. Tonight on The Strong Stance, Melvin Whitehead will join me as we reflect on how we feel about ESPN's handling (or lack of) on the situation.  We're also going to talk about outing/disclosure and transphobia.  Yes, the gloves are off, emotions are checked at the door; and, we've got the labels on the table.  We're taking The Strong Stance. Are you?
