Outsources: Surviving and Flourishing as a Trans Woman

Posted: January 16, 2017 at 6:30 pm by , in Outsources

Join Angela Palermo for a conversation with transgender activist and artist Regina Kalacova.  Regina is a powerful advocate for the rights of trans folks and is a survivor of a traumatic sexual assault as a teenager.  We discuss her time living on the streets following the assault, her volunteer work at the Center in Denver, coming out as trans to herself and her daughters, her visit to the White House where she met Dr. Jill Biden, how the Affordable Care Act has improved her life and prospects for trans people under the upcoming Trump Administration.
