Video: Janet Mock and Isis King on media representations of trans women

Watch this:

So good right? I especially love the way diversity of opinion on language is represented as both personal and political. Janet and Isis rock.

    Fantastic!

    Loved the criticism of the CNN interview, re: the overkill of “Transgender 101″.

    I was also really interested in the discussion about language and the tension that can arise from having contradictory perspectives/comfort levels with words and self-identifying language.

    This is a really important video. Thanks for sharing Jos!
