Transyouth Katie Hill: Cable News's Only Trans Spokesperson This Weekend?
What is it to come out as a transgender youth? What is it to come out as a lesbian youth? CNN’s Don Lemon interviewed a couple of LGBT young women about the HRC speech by President Obamba:
As far as I can tell, Katie Hill — speaking from Tulsa, Oklahoma — is the only trans person that the cable news networks spoke to this past weekend regarding either the President’s speech to the HRC or about coverage of the National Equality March.
She did pretty damn well. I know I’m proud of Ms. Hill in her role as a trans community spokesperson.
But seriously, could the cable news networks find no other trans people to interview than a transyouth from Tulsa? Not one from DC?
The T (transgender) of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) community was nearly completely erased from the media coverage this past weekend. This is one of two posts I’ll have (hopefully) have up regarding cable news coverage this past weekend.
