Closet Talk: TransIssues with Allyson Robinson, Associate Director of Diversity, HRC
Even a summary of Allyson Robinson’s life and work within the LGBT community would fill a book. Allyson is a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, a pastor with a Masters in divinity, the Associate Director of Diversity for HRC, a wife and a mother. Just in case I forget to mention it later, Allyson is also transgender – and she blogs! In this episode of Closet Talk, we discussed Allyson’s life before coming out/transitioning and her life now.
Interestingly, Allyson is also legally married to a woman, something we further discuss on the show. Their marriage, while illegal for most same-sex couples, is recognized by the United States government because Allyson was married prior to her transition. Listen to the show to learn more about this “loop-hole” in the law.
