HuffPo Live Goes Deep on Trans Issues

Posted by on Wed, Sep 18, 2013 at 1:37 PM

In the discussion: HuffPo host Marc Lamont Hill, media scholar Mark Anthony Neal, writer Janet Mock, and Orange Is the New Black star Laverne Cox. Inspired by the revelations of DJ Mister Cee—the legendary NYC DJ who made an emotional on-air confession about his sexual desire for trans women—the conversation goes impressively deep on issues facing trans women and the men who love them. (Bonus: This four-person panel features **two** actual trans women.) Watch it.

Can we PLEASE start a kickstarter, or get someone at Neumo's or Lo-Fi or somewhere to get Mister Cee out here? No one in America (the birthplace of hip-hop) do we love and show support for both equality, and hip-hop.

This dude is a fucking legend. I mean seriously, one of the most influential DJ's to come out of New York since the birth of hip-hop, and with all the shit he's gone through with arrests, making a proclamation on HOT97 of all places, he deserves to be not only respected, but honored.

Honored for his contributions to the culture, honored for his courage to talk openly about his sexuality and preferences, and honored for his great taste and contributions to music over the last two decades.
