My guest this episode is Dr. Eric Meininger specializes in adolescent health with special emphasis on transgender adolescents and LGBT homeless youth.  After the interview stick around for “American Punk”, a track from the recently released “Burning Rubber” the newest EP from The Homobiles.

Dr. Eric Meininger specializes in adolescent health with special emphasis on transgender adolescents and LGBT homeless youth.  I first met Dr. Meininger about 6 years ago in a professional setting, but we don’t mention anything about in this episode because we are both cognizant of patient privacy and the ethics surrounding keeping patient information private.

Dr. Meininger is a wonderful person, a wonderful doctor, and gasp shock & horror, the lead usher at All God’s Children Metropolitan Community Church.  Yes Dr. Meininger is yet another christian appearing on an atheist podcast…but that’s because to me the god question is much less important than how we treat each other, how we respect, care, and treat our fellow humans…and Dr. Meininger respects, cares, and treats his patients and the people in his life wonderfully.  Too often in the trans community we are faced with gatekeepers who are trying to keep us out.  Dr. Meininger definitely manages a gate, but from this interview, and the years I’ve personally known him, his role at that gate is to help the trans community get through the gate and onto their true authentic selves.  We need more allies like Dr. Eric Meininger in healthcare.
