Face the State

Transgender, Trump & Clinton


The transgender bathroom and locker room issue has been a hot topic lately, and we’re taking it up this Sunday on Face the State. Our first guest is Diana Lombardi, from the Connecticut Transadvocacy Coalition. She’ll talk about the transgender community in our state, the laws, and President Obama’s recent announcement.

We are also joined by two longtime voices in Connecticut, Gina Barreca and Jim Vicevich, who shared vastly different views on the transgender bathroom issue and whether high school students of one gender should share a locker room with someone of the opposite gender but identifies with the other.

Barreca is a UConn professor, author and Hartford Courant columnist. Vicevich is a former WFSB business reporter, and now the host of “Sound Off Connecticut” on WTIC AM 1080.

They also weigh in on Clinton versus Trump in a very lively conversation.

Also on the program, the new mayor of West Hartford Shari Cantor, sitting down for her first extended interview since being sworn in Monday to replace Scott Slifka.


Our flashback takes us back to 1992, when Oprah Winfrey visited Hartford’s North End. We have a report from our archives filed by my former morning news co-anchor Virginia Cha.

Tune in Sunday morning at 11 on WFSB.
