Transsexuals make their television debut on WETV’s ‘Sex Change Hospital’ this fall. With the controversy surrounding Prop. 8 in California and a deep and resounding call to acknowledge equal rights for all, we can expect to see this show climb the ranks--if for no other reason than sheer curiosity.

This isn’t the first time transsexuals have stormed television.  ‘America’s Next Top Model’ recently featured a transsexual, and Barack Obama acknowledged gender identity in his pledge for equality for all.

‘Sex Change Hospital’ features the cases of 12 transsexuals, both pre and post-op. Catch the episode featuring Stephanie and Ryan on Tuesday, November 18th for a closer look at the struggles of those whose lives are affected and improved from gender reassignment surgery.
