Interesting reading

I'm not usually too sure just how much we have to Thank Richard O'Brien for, in his Rocky Horror Show the portrayal of Transvestites was not that flattering and could lead to a reinforcement of some negative attitudes, on the other hand it is very popular, has some great songs and is very entertaining.

No surprise then that he should be the figure head chosen by the BBC for their reporting on Gender issues read more here or listen here,   just as a warning the audio file is not yet available  so I haven't heard it yet myself.   Having said that I am glad that the BBC has picked up on this story, and trust that they will have applied their usual high standards of journalism and independence of thought to this issue.
