bloomingOUT – March 12, 2015


Hosts Erica Dorsey, Ryne Shadday, and Jeff Poling interview our guest JJ Gufreda, an author and playwright, about her book, Left Hander in London, as well as her background being a transgender woman.  We also hear some of JJ’s original music. This song is her latest. This is her response to the recent transgender bathroom and religious freedom laws. When You Gotta Go You Gotta Go she says might be a little tongue in cheek but it raises some good points to counteract the bigotry and fear exhibited by people introducing and supporting these bills.  This is JJ Gufreda “When you gotta go you gotta go”. Our weekly segment Out on Campus, the second part of Arielle’s conversation with Frankie about his time at the Midwestern Bi Lesbian Gay Transgender Ally College Conference. This week, the two talk about identity formation and development, learning about other identities, and how the conference played into the relationship between the two. Our staff would like to thank our guest JJ Gufreda for being with us tonight.
