Transgender Kids on the Dr. Oz Show: The Video

It looks like some great friends were able to get this uploaded to YouTube.  I haven't seen the video yet but read the transcript and was pretty impressed.  It seems like a lot of other organizations were delighted to see it done in a very professional manner instead of the usual sensaltionalizing of the subject we've seen in the past.

I'm sure it's being posted all over the place, but I'm also including it here in case you missed it:

Dr. Oz Show to Feature Transgender Children - Tune in Thursday, February 18th

(crossposted from my personal blog):

Many people were disappointed with the way the Tyra Show handled the sensitive subject of raising a transgender child.  This Thursday the Dr. Oz Show will attempt to approach the topic honestly and more thoroughly.  I've been told by Kim Pearson of Trans Youth Family Allies and by one of the mothers who was there with her transgender daughter that the taping went exceptionally well and that this will be a show that was clearly done right.

I will be watching this Thursday, either during or later on that evening via DVR. Please be sure to tune in.  Here is a preview from the Dr. Oz Show:

Dana writes in her most recent post about an encounter with an old friend that turned out quite positive.  Her retelling of the story is touching as you read along, so please do so and don't forget to comment afterward!

T-Central Viewed Through Google Analytics

I wanted to provide a brief update to show the steady growth of T-Central since I first created this blogroll as a type of second page to my main blog.  The site continues to be used by many of you who are interested in reading trans related blogs but prefer the site to using RSS feed readers ( I also use Google Reader to keep up with all my favorite feeds).

As you can see by the image above, T-Central receives on average anywhere between 150 to 200 unique visits a day, and it continues to trend upwards with more readers returning to use the site as a link to visit other blogs.  

If you know of new sites you'd like for us consider including here, please use the form at the "T-Central Comments and Questions Page."  If you don't like the broad range of topics here, feel free to create your own blogroll page similar to this one that suits your needs.  Otherwise, keep enjoying reading and sharing your comments with other fellow bloggers!
