Dr. Christine McGinn??


DALLAS—A physician and former Navy pilot who has served as part of the ground medical crew for NASA missions has revealed that she is a transgender lesbian preparing to undergo gender-reassignment surgery, the Dallas Voice reported. Dr. Christine McGinn, 31, has served twice as part of the team that would go into space in case of a medical emergency during a space mission. McGinn's process of coming out began in her home town of Philadelphia, where her therapy group was approached by MSNBC to create a documentary on transsexuals. McGinn felt a responsibility to come forward as the documentary went forward. "They were interviewing all these people and the people they were picking weren't really what I would call a good representation," she said. McGinn's surgery was scheduled for Aug. 9, and the documentary is slated to air on MSNBC this fall.

  2. " transgender lesbian preparing to undergo gender-reassignment surgery"

    If a person undergoes the gender-reassignment surgery then they have decided the sex that they want to be. So i guess its safe to say that this person had two genitials.

  8. Transgendered?
    Lesbians?

    These names are made up by the people who engaged in sexual intercourse with one of their family members knowing what the consequence produces if a child is born.

    Recessive genes!

    They refuse to use the medical term of hermaphrodite or admit that they were born with a defiency in 5-Alpha-Reductase e.t.c.

    Why? It will trace back to their past. They one that don't want to public to know about.

    Incest! Stop having sex and children with your cousins.

    2. 1st, hermaphrodite is one who has both a penis and internal. female organs. Has nothing to do w/ transgender. Christine is not a Hermaphrodite. Her brain identified her body as a female instead of a male, and after transitioning to a female is a lesbien. I. Worked with her years ago and she is a beautiful person inside and out. She is invaluable!)

  17. As the daughter of a transgender father, seeing the 2012 postings was heartening after having read those of the abysmally ignorant from 2011. Dad had been approved for reassignment surgery, however my siblings said that if he transitioned they'd have nothing to do with him, so with his dream within his grasp,he gave it up. What a shame. They called him selfish for wanting to transition. I call THEM selfish for extorting him into abandoning his chance to truly be.

  18. Upon revisiting the posts prior to mine of April 6, 2012, I find it necessary to make one correction by removing "from 2011" from the text. Further, ignorance can be so dangerous. I take my hat off to every individual with the courage to be true to themselves especially when that truth puts them outside current "norms". Here's looking toward a more enlightened, accepting tomorrow.

    She's one of the transgender community's most passionate advocates. Yet New Hope plastic surgeon Christine McGinn has an equally intense suspicion of the news media even as she relies on them to get her message heard.

    "There is so much ignorance out there about transgendered people," says McGinn, one of half a dozen transgender men and women profiled in Trans, a documentary screening Sunday as part of Philadelphia QFest and one of an unusually large crop of transgender films at the annual lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender film festival.

    "I've been on Anderson Cooper, Dr. Oz, and Oprah Winfrey, and even these shows have a difficulty with transgender representation," McGinn continues. "The most well-meaning hosts can end up making a circus of it all."

    Despite her reservations, McGinn agreed to take part in Trans after meeting its producer, Mark Schoen, who served with her on the board of the National Advisory Council on Sexual Health, formed by former U.S. Surgeon General David Satcher.

    "Basically we got to talking about ... how there is a need for a well-made documentary that covers some of the social issues that affect transgendered people," says McGinn, one of the few surgeons in America who specialize in sex-reassignment surgery.

    Schoen, founder of the sex health-education company Sex Smart Films, says he and McGinn decided to approach the topic from a new angle.

    McGinn, Schoen says, was disenchanted with media coverage that focused only on her personal story, which he allows is "a fantastic story."


    She was subjected to intense — and, she says, exploitive — media coverage in 2000 when she had sex-reassignment surgery. Schoen promised he would not sensationalize his subjects, and his film does not dwell on McGinn's preoperative state.

    "This film is about discrimination, human justice, and civil rights," says Schoen, who moved to New Hope two months ago. Issues covered in the film include workplace discrimination, hate crimes, and the antipathy of the health-insurance industry to transgender health needs.

    McGinn says most major medical organizations, including the American Medical Association, consider hormone therapy and surgery not as elective treatments but as necessary for the transgender individual's well-being. "There has been plenty of research which shows that the therapy that combines hormones and surgery is very effective," says McGinn. "This is a serious public health issue," she adds, citing the vastly increased incidence of suicide attempts among transgender people.

    Trans director Chris Arnold says each portrait tries to show "that each trans experience is really something that everyone can understand and sympathize with."

    He adds, "The film is trying to reach out to people who have had no real education about the trans experience and show that these are not freaks

  31. May I simply just say what a comfort to uncover a person that really knows what they're talking about online. You definitely know how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More people really need to look at this and understand this side of your story. It's surprising you aren't more popular because you most certainly have the gift.

  33. The most important part of packing for the business trip is actually not part of
