  • Pablito  - Great education & information
    I teach human sexuality at a community college and I used this video for our unit on gender identity & expression. I met Gordene & Nancy years ago at UNM. The way that they talked about gender back then was truly transformative for me in my late teens. Now i'm so thrilled to share them in some way with other young adults. Even on a midterm in response to a question about gender binary, many of my students wrote, "In fact there are 50 million galaxies of gender." Even if there are really 50 billion galaxies, I think they get the message. Thanks for the great work!
  • Stephanie  - your program
  • Joe P  - thank you
    Thank you so much for the information contained in your presentations. As a mental health provider just trying to get started in private practice, it has been frustrating to find anything professionally-oriented. Please keep up the great work! JP Chapel Hill, NC

    Please recommend Bujinkan Ninjutsu to those who suffer. There is an open door to those with GLBT. It is happening!

    Those with GLBT. I'm sorry if I made it sound like a diagnosis. Those who are GLBT. No offense intended.

    Thanks for this, but Logo, according to their website, is looking for something very different. Thanks for watching, though, and contributing this flattering suggestion.

    Thank you for your informative, interesting and very professional programs. And thank God for both of you...Bless you both and continuing success for GenderVision. At your service, Dani Morris
  • Nancy  - Thank You!
    Thanks, Dani, for taking the time to share your kind words.
  • Ellen Margaret Brennecke  - Wonderful
    After having worked in TV and film for decades, especially the first one spent in Public TV, this excites me like few other shows have. I just wish I didn't live on the West Coast, so I could be personally involved. Quite a triumph! Maggie
  • Nancy  - We wish you could, too!
    Maybe one day...
  • John  - Excellent
    I'm so glad I found this site, and this show. I identify as transgender (FTM) and it often feels like I'm the only person who thinks twice about gender in a 100 mile radius. It's nice to see that I'm not the only one. I like the fact that your show talks about both sides of the coin, the MTF side and the FTM sides. Has there ever been or will there ever be a show on FTM specific topics? Thank you for making this guy not feel quite so alone! John
  • Nancy  - We'll get there
    Thanks for your kind words, we've now talked about some FTM issues with Alejandro Marcel (see "Transgender Health Care"), and will surely do more in the future.
  • Jenny Slater  - Another Triumph
    Well done again people, another good show. Once you have enough episodes together, I'm sure some of the bigger channels would run it as a series. Especially in places like the UK where we have public funded television. Jenny
  • Nancy  - No no, thank You!
    Thanks for this, and for all the good work you're doing 'across the pond'!
