Erica Connerney is a philosophy/trans literature professor and author living in Tribeca, NY. She discusses her past and present in terms of her identity as a transsexual woman, as well as her hopes for the future. Main topics include her personal involvement with both Catholicism and Dianic Wicca, the importance of community for LBGT people concerning psychological health and survival, and the perceived loss of gay spaces such as bookstores, beaches, and bars due to the wider acceptance of LGBT identities from the straight majority. (Summary by Peri Wait.)
