Trans & Incarcerated: Chelsea Manning and “Orange Is The New Black”

Chelsea Manning

August 26, 2013 – Segment 1

We begin the week with a conversation about transgender people who are incarcerated, in light of Bradley Manning’s announcement last week that she identifies as a woman named Chelsea. We speak to:

  • Lauren McNamara, marketing writer who lives in Orlando who was called to testify at the Chelsea Manning trial because of online chats she had with Manning, and author of “The Humanity of Private Manning”;
  • Cecilia Chung, senior strategist at the Transgender Law Center;
  • and Monica Stevens, local activist.
