Interview with Kalina Isato


Monika: Today’s interview will be with Kalina Isato, an American Chinese-American producer, musician, and media personality. Hello Kalina!
Kalina: Hi Monika! Thank you for speaking with me today.
Monika: What are you doing these days?
Kalina: I’m back in school studying photography and counselling. I had my first art show in 2009 at the local LGBT center’s art gallery. I’ve also had many of my works on display at my school’s art galleries and won a prestigious award for best artwork in a show in 2011. I’m also getting into counselling and want to gain some solid skills so I can help people with any mental health or transition issues they may have.

Interview with Frances McKevitt


Monika: Today’s interview will be with Frances McKevitt, inspirational woman, transgender artist and leader of the band "The Frantastics". Hello Frances!
Frances: Hello Monika!
Monika: What are you doing these days?
Frances: Very much what I have always been doing, travelling and performing in London and around the country, perfuming both solo and with the band. I’m also doing a lot of gardening, not very rock ‘n’ roll I know, but I seem to have caught the gardening bug real bad. I’ve a beautiful summerhouse at the end of my garden, where I like to spend time reading and writing new songs.

Interview with Babs Siperstein


Monika: Today it is my pleasure and honour to interview Babs Siperstein with whom I would like to discuss the role of transgender women in the US politics. Hello Babs!
Babs: Hi, Monika! Thank you, for the opportunity to have an international stage. As one who can neither sing, dance nor model, it is a rare opportunity!
Monika: Could you say a few words about your career so far?
Babs: Lucky! The writer and actor Woody Allen once said that 80% of success in life is just showing up and I’m fortunate that I’ve been able to show up and lucky that when opportunities have arisen, I’ve been able to “carpe diem”, take advantage of them.
Monika: What are the current issues on the transgender advocacy agenda?
Babs: Where to begin? I think the most important right now are jobs and access to health care. Often in many cases it’s just a fundamental matter of survival. Looking at the big picture we need win the culture wars to gain the societal respect to be recognized as the people we are.
