Welcome to the Aged to Perfection archive! I’ll continue to do new shows, but we have a treasure trove of great interviews in the vault that deserve to be heard again (and again). Here’s one with Dr. Michele Angello, whose book on raising and supporting trans youth is a must-read. – Mark McNease/Editor
Listen in as co-hosts Mark McNease and Rick Rose we welcome Dr. Michele Angello to this week’s podcast. We’ll be devoting the entire show to a conversation with Dr. Angello, whose new book ‘On the Couch with Dr. Angello: Raising & Supporting Transgender Youth‘ is out now. You can also read a text interview we did with her HERE which was linked to from the HuffPost Gay Voices page. This excellent book takes us through the complex issues faced by transgender youth and their families as they navigate the maze of coming out as transgender.

She offers individual, group and family therapy, as well as corporate education and training on a variety of issues of sexuality and has presented internationally on her work with trans-youth and working with children of transitioning parents.

She has appeared on Larry King Live, the Tyra Banks Show, and various documentaries on transgender issues.
