CeCe McDonaldJanuary 31, 2014 – Segment 3

Listen to our interview with CeCe McDonald, a transgender woman and activist from Minneapolis, and Katie Burgess, Executive Director of Trans Youth Support Network in Minneapolis.  McDonald was released from prison on January 13th after serving 19 months for her alleged involvement in stabbing a man with scissors. Supporters of McDonald say that she was defending herself against a group of people who came at her and her friends with a bar glass, in a racist and trans-phobic attack. She was held in a men’s prison, even though she identifies as a trans woman.
