MSNBC'S MELISSA HARRIS-PERRY HIGHLIGHTS TRANS, LGB INEQUALITIES

On Sunday, MSNBC Host Melissa Harris-Perry dedicated more than half of her show to discussing the everyday challenges LGBT Americans face when trying to participate fully in their communities. Perry, who hosts the self-titled Sunday morning political-talk show, interviewed author Kate Bornstein, Mara Keisling, executive director for the National Center for Transgender Equality, and Mel Wymore, a candidate for the New York City Council to talk about gender identity and expression as well as the need for greater understanding acceptance and awareness about transgender people.

 “Transgender people are just ordinary people in most ways. We are just real people who need to work, need to raise our children, need to go to school, need to be in Miss Universe Pageants,” said Keisling.
