Transgendered people are becoming more open about who they are and, in the process, they're shaking up traditional notions of gender and sexual identity, dismaying the usual conservative suspects and even some gay activists. Antoinette Pezet is president of Transsupport, a Portland-based advocacy group, and she has tried to start a satellite group in Aroostook County, so far without much success. The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Policy Institute reported in its new manual, "Transgender Equality: A Handbook for Activists and Policymakers," that 60 percent of transgendered people have experienced hate-related violence. With comments by transgender activists and advocates around the country.
