Please join us for Transpositive on KBOO Community Radio on Tuesday, January 4th at 6 pm as we talk with Carter Lee and Nicolette Schweizer for an in-depth discussion about gender identity and disability from a person-centered perspective.   Carter Lee is a disabled nonbinary person who will share their stories of interactions with medical personnel who have misgendered them and failed to address them with dignity and professional respect.  Nicolette Schweizer, a regular co-host of Transpositive will share their experiences with health services and the challenges of juggling multiple modes of treatment, providers, and insurance on a limited budget.  Carter Lee hopes that by giving disabled queer trans people an opportunity to authentically share their story in the media it will help to raise awareness about the treatment of trans and non-binary people, and especially raise awareness about issues facing trans and non-binary persons with a disability.  

Transpositive is a biweekly program in Portland exploring themes important to those who identify as Transgender, Gender Non-Binary, and Gender Non-Conforming. Transpositive tries to connect listeners with the ongoing activist, arts, culture, and dialogue happening in Portland and beyond. Make your voice heard! Transpositive PDX is open to new and experienced programmers, guests, and events you want our community to know about. We are an open collective. Anyone who identifies as trans, gender non-binary, gender fluid is welcome to be part of our collective after completing some basic free radio training. For more information contact Emma at
