Greta Martela and Nina Chaubal, co-founders of Trans Lifeline

Join Angela for an interview with Greta Martela and Nina Chaubal, co-founders of Trans Lifeline, a suicide crisis line specifically for transgender and gender variant people. We discuss the scope of the problem of trans suicide and the challenges Trans Lifeline faces as the organization moves into 2016.

Examining an emotionally fraught topic like trans suicide isn’t easy, but it is necessary nonetheless. And quite possibly life-saving as well. For more information on Trans Lifeline, please visit www.translifeline.org.
