Jennifer Finney Boylan: A Life in Two Genders

With her bestselling book She’s Not There: A Life in Two Genders, Jennifer Finney Boylan helped redefine the conversation about being transgendered in the United States. In this program, Boylan talks candidly about being transgender and about the changes in her roles as spouse, parent, and friend as she transitioned from male to female. The author of ten books, Boylan teaches at Colby College in Maine and was distinguished writer-in-residence at Ursinus College in Pennsylvania in 2010. A regular contributor to the Op-Ed page of the New York Times and Condé Nast Traveler, she is also a nationally known advocate for civil rights.

Recorded Sunday, November 7, 2010 at the Francis W. Parker School.
