Round Table Rebellion is LYR’s monthly podcast where the members and their guests discuss intersectional feminism. In episode 7, LYR founder Angela Page hosts an all trans panel in honor of Women’s History Month. Angela invited local entertainer Rachel Valentine, local body modification artist Rogan Watral, and genderqueer activist Joi Dupler to discuss trans rights, discrimination and violence against trans people, and Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminists (TERFs). This episode was recorded live by engineer Pete Flower at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center in Fort Myers, FL. Produced by Angela Page.
The struggle for transgender rights is complex and varied. However, denial of rights to trans people has been recognized by many as the civil rights struggle of our generation. Why is the fight for trans rights classified this way? In the Round Table Rebellion, E7: TransGeneration, listeners will hear first hand what this struggle feels like, how different it is for everyone, and what little acceptance the trans community feels inside and outside of leftist circles. This episode explores how specifically trans people are denied rights, how trans people experience the threat of violence and discrimination, and how the feminist community has shunned the fight for transgender rights. Listen now to hear this in-depth discussion about being part of the TransGeneration.
