Transgender Tipping Point?

time_trans.jpg

The high-profile failure of a Maryland petition drive to repeal a transgender rights law -- the so-called "Bathroom Bill" -- lends support to the claim, featured on Time's cover this week, that the U.S. has reached a tipping point in the acceptance of transgender people. Our guests: transgender rights activist Jenna Fischetti, who helped get the Maryland bill passed; and Sara Raley, professor of gender studies at McDaniel College.

With production help from Midday Intern Tom Cartaxo.
