Today's Show:Transgender Progress

3:30pm EST - We've spoken this week about the appointment of Amanda Simpson to the Department Of Commerce, making her the first transgender appointment to the Obama administration. Today, we'll speak with Mara Keisling, executive director of the National Center for Transgender Equality, about the groundbreaking appointment by the president, the criticism from the right about the appointment and the progress the transgender community has made in Washington and throughout the country. We'll also talk about the joke by David Letterman mocking Simpson that has gay groups calling for an apology.
