NATHALIE CROWLEY: ANTI-TRANS MEMO

In this episode, Nathalie Crowley from the Family Tree Clinic in MN joins to discuss the anti-transgender memo uncovered by the New York Times, which revealed that the Trump administration could be seeking to narrowly redefine the concept of sex as an " immutable condition determined by genitalia at birth." The Family Tree Clinic offers sexual health services for under-served communities and a large percentage of their patients are from the LGBTQ community. We discuss the pragmatic implications of the memo, if it were to take affect, including how it would make it more difficult to travel, get ID, vote and how it could potentially expose the trans community to further hostility.
