Lesbian thrown out of women's room, asked to leave restaurant...in Greenwich Village...on Gay Pride!

I had Khadijah Farmer on the show yesterday telling her outrageous story along with her lawyer, Michael Silverman of the Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund. She is not transgendered, but this an example of where all our issues intersect.She was booted because of her gender expression, because she is butch. The irony is that the only man in the bathroom was the bouncer who pounded on Khadijah's stall!

Today on the show: former surgeon general Jocelyn Elders, on George Bush's crackpot, "ex-gay" promoting surgeon general nominee James Holsinger (Senate hearings scheduled for July 12); and Ken Silverstein on the cozy Washington press corp.
