9: Gender is a Journey

In this episode, Cynthia and Yvette interview Isa Noyola, the Deputy Director of the Transgender Law Center, discuss the manslaughter conviction of Ky Peterson, and analyze the G.G. v. Gloucester County School Board case. They highlight the ways in which survivors of domestic violence are criminalized and note the challenges that trans folks face in being able to navigate public space. Isa shares how her gender identity is linked to reclaiming her indigenous roots, the importance of letting those directly impacted lead, and what gender would look like in her ideal world.
