Facing South Florida: Transgender Issues

In early December, the Miami-Dade County Commission is set to vote on whether to include transgender protection in the Human Rights Ordinance. That ordinance currently makes it illegal to discriminate against an individual based on age, gender, race and sexual orientation. Jim discusses this with former Miami-Dade commissioner Katy Sorenson, who is the original sponsor of the ordinance, and Anthony Verdugo, who is the executive director of the Christian Family Coalition. First we air an expanded version of Jim’s sit-down interview with Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, her husband Dexter Lehtinen, and their transgender son Rodrigo.
