DETROIT - The theme of this year's Transgender Institute is 'Dishing T: Commercial Sex Workers vs. Mainstream Employment.' Demetris Taylor, organizer of this year's Institute, is making sure that bases are covered in getting the word out about the area's T- community. In past years, the Institute has only been open to people who self-identified as trans. This year, if you admit you need education and are willing to learn, you're invited. The event hopes to, "Challenge the images seen in what I see as the Jerry Springer era, as well as people who constantly refuse to see our trans sisters as human beings and are always negative and dehumanizing," says Taylor.
