Video: Last Week Tonight’s John Oliver On Transgender Rights

This week’s gay rights victory was historic, but the transgender community still faces staggering challenges. Last Week Tonight’s John Oliver focuses on the “T” in “LGBT.”

“Transgender people have a gender identity that differs from the one they were assigned at birth. Gender identity is who you are; sexual orientation is who you love. Some transgender people do undergo hormone therapy or sex reassignment surgery as part of their transition; some do not. And interestingly, their decision on this matter is, medically speaking, none of your fucking business.”
