You can read more about the program and hear archived episodes on the GenderTalk website.
Tonight's show features music, poetry and other writing by transgender, non-binary and gender-nonconforming artists, in addition to clips from archived episodes of GenderTalk and other recordings/media.

"you can't disarm me with words that I chose for myself / can't force upon me the judgement of anyone else
I'm not the problem but a greater fantasy / don't know what you're imagining, your worst fear sets a fire in me"
