Living Transgender In Iowa

He was a successful athlete and went on to be a very aggressive and successful lawyer, but there was something wrong and he finally realized that he could no longer live as a man. In this edition of Talk of Iowa, host Charity Nebbe talks with Ellen Krug about being transgender and her journey to where she is today.

Trans-identified University of Iowa doctoral student, stef shuster, and UI  Hospitals LGBT clinic specialist, Dr. Katie Imborek, also join the program to talk about what it means to be transgender in Iowa.
