TRANSITION HAS THAT OPTION.

>> Pinocchio: BUT YES, LARRY,SOME HAVE TO LIVE A CONFUSED

AND UNFULFILLED LIFE.

SOME GROW BITTER AND ANGRY.

HERO.

GENDER.

>> Ian: GENDER IS WHAT YOUHAVE IN YOUR HEAD.

YOU GET TO CREATE IT.

>> Larry: THAT'S THE PLUMBER

>> YES

>> Larry: OKAY, THEN.TRANSGENDER

>> TRANSGENDER IS A PERSON WHOSESEXUAL IDENTITY DIFFERS FROM THE

THAN THE SEX THEY WERE ASSIGNEDAT BIRTH.

>> Larry: SO THE PLUMBER ISBORN A PLUMBER, BUT INSIDE HE

OR SHE FEELS LIKE ANELECTRICIAN.

>> YES, DEEP DOWN THEY ALWAYSKNEW THEY WERE DIFFERENT.

>> Larry: HERE'S ONEI'VE NEVER HEARD: CISGENDER.

>> Ian: LET ME CISPLAIN IT TOYOU.

A CISGENDER PERSON IS SOMEONEWHOSE GENDER IDENTITY MATCHES

THE SEX THEY WERE ASSIGNED ATBIRTH.

LIKE YOU, MAYBE.

BLACK AND WHITE DEFINITION OFJUST MALE AND FEMALE, THAT'S

MAYBE SOMEONE WHO FLOWS INAND AROUND

DAY TO DAY

>> Larry: SO THERE'S A FLOW.

YEAH.

>> Larry: MAYBE THEY DON'TNECESSARILY BELIEVE IT'S JUST

MALE AND JUST FEMALE.

>> Larry: THAT SOUNDS LIKEGENDER LAZY TO ME.

I DON'T FEEL LIKE BEING A MAN.

I'M GOING TO BE A WOMAN.

YEAH, BECAUSE THAT WASCONFUSING, GENDER FLUID.

I DIDN'T KNOW KNOW IF IT WASMAYBE SOMETHING THE MAID

COMPLAINS ABOUT AFTER THE FRATPARTIES. I'M CLEARING IT UP!

OKAY, THIRD GENDER IS SIMILAR TOGENDER FLUID

>> Ian: THIRD GENDER PEOPLEDEFINE THEMSELVES AS NOT JUST

MALE OR FEMALE

THERE'S GENDER QUEER, GENDERFLUID, NON-BINARY CONCEPTS.

IT'S NOT JUST THIS OR THATANYMORE.

IT NEVER WAS BUT NOW WE'RE JUSTTALKING ABOUT IT IN SUCH WAYS.

IT'S MORE BROADER THAN WE EVERTHOUGHT.

MY MOUTH WAS OPEN THE WHOLE TIMEWATCHING IT.

>> LARRY!

>> Larry: NO, BECAUSE ITHOUGHT, MAN!

THAT'S MOVING US SO FORWARD, ITFELT LIKE.

BUT IF YOU WEIGH IT AGAINST HOWFAR THE KARDASHIANS MOVED US

BACK -- 1883, MAYBE?

WHAT WAS YOUR IMPRESSION OFTHAT?

>> FOR ME, IT WAS SO POWERFUL.

I JUST WANT TO HUG BRUCE JENNER.

I JUST WANT TO HUG EVERYBODY.

IT WAS SUCH A LOVING MOMENT TOSEE THIS VERY HUMANIZED THING.

I WAS HAVING A CONVERSATION WITHFRIENDS IN THE PHILIPPINES AND

THEY'RE, LIKE, HOW THE HELL AREWE GOING TO FIND AN INTERVIEW?

THE TRANSGENDER PEOPLE AREHACKING THIS JUST TO FIND THE

INFORMATION.

>> THIS IS SUCH AN ICON, ANHISTORIC, ICONIC HERO IN

AMERICAN HISTORY, ATHLETE -->> Larry: HE WAS ALL RIGHT!

(LAUGHTER)>> YOU KNOW, HE WAS ON TV FOR

THE LAST 40 YEARS.

NOW HE'S IN THE MOMENT -- ANDI'M SAYING "HE" BECAUSE THAT'S

WHAT THEY SAID TO USE.

NO ONE CAN SAY THEY DON'T KNOW ATRANS PERSON ANYMORE.

>> BUT THIS DOES NOT FORGIVE THEKARDASHIANS!

IT'S GOING TO TAKE A LOT MORE!

THOSE CRAZY, FAME-HUNGRY THIRSTBUCKETS!

THEY MADE ME ACTUALLY CARE ANDSCOTT IS GOING TO BE THERE AT

THE BIRTH OF HIS DAUGHTER ORNOT?

WHY DO THEY DO THIS TO ME?

>> Larry: IS THERE ANYONE WHOTHINKS THIS WAS A PUBLICITY

STUNT?

>> I DON'T KNOW, LARRY -->> Larry: EVEN IF IT WAS, IT

STILL HELPS A LOT OF PEOPLE,RIGHT?

>> IT DOES.

I'M SORRY IF I'M FEELING LIKE --HE'S COMING OUT SO PUBLICLY AND

ON TV, HE HAS TO DO EVERYTHINGON TV.

>> Larry: HE SHOULD HAVE DONEIT ON RADIO OR SOMETHING?

>> ABSOLUTELY!

ABSOLUTELY ON RADIO!

>> ONE OF THE THINGS -- I DON'TMIND -- I LIKE THAT IT'S NOT A

MEDIA CIRCUS, BUT YOU WOULDTHINK WITH ALL THE COLLECTIVE

PROCEDURES AND WORK THEKARDASHIANS HAVE HAD DONE, BRUCE

IS LIKE THE EIGHTH IN THE FAMILYTO COME OUT AS TRANS.

>> THAT'S A LOT OF THE SURGERY.

>> Larry: A LOT OF THETERMINOLOGY IS INTERESTING.

I WANT TO MAKE SURE I DON'TINSULT ANYBODY.

IS THERE A TRANS VERSION OF THEN-WORD?

I SUPPOSE OR A TRIGGER ORSOMETHING.

>> THERE IS A WORD BUT I DON'TWANT TO SAY THE WORD.

IT'S ONE OF THOSE WORDS I DON'TWANT TO SAY IT.

IT WOULD IGNITE PEOPLE USING IT.

I FEAR IF I TELL YOU WHAT ITIS --

>> Larry: WHAT, YOU WANT TOWRITE IT DOWN?

(LAUGHTER)>> I REMEMBER WHEN I WAS GROWING

UP IN THE PHILIPPINES, EVERYTIME WE WOULD WALK AROUND IN MY

NEIGHBORHOOD, PEOPLE WOULDSCREAM AT ME AND I WOULD BE,

LIKE, HOW DO I REROUTE MY WAY INOTHER PLACES?

I NEEDED GOOGLE MAP TO FIGURE ITOUT.

>> Larry: IS TRANNIE A BADWORD?

>> NO, IT'S LIKE THE "N" WORD OFTHE TRANS COMMUNITY.

THE ONLY TIME IS BY YOURMECHANIC WHEN THEY SAY, DUDE,

YOUR TRANNIE IS MESSED UP SO I'MGOING TO HAVE TO REBUILD IT.

>> CAN YOU SAY TRANNA, NOTTRANNIE?

LIKE 'WHAT UP, MY TRANNA?' IDON'T KNOW! I'M ASKING!

>> Larry: IS THERE A SENSETHAT THE TRANSGENDER COMMUNITY,

LIKE, THEY'RE OWNING THE WORD,LIKE, GAY PEOPLE CAN SAY, I CAN

CALL MYSELF A FAG BUT YOU CAN'T.

>> I'VE HEARD THEM USING IT BUT,LIKE, ME WALKING AROUND AND

BEING SCREAMED THAT WAY ON THESTREET.

>> Larry: THAT IS DEFINITELYNOT RIGHT.

>> SOME PEOPLE HAVE DIFFERENTOPINIONS.

>> Larry: I AM SO PRONOUNCONFUSED.

>> YEAH.

YOU JUST HAVE TO WAIT FOR WHATSOMEBODY SAYS THEY WANT TO BE

CALLED.

>> Larry: RIGHT.

THEY IS THE SAFEST GROUNDUNTIL YOU GET TO KNOW THEM AND

ASK THEM WHAT THEIR PRONOUN IS.

GET TO THAT SPACE WHERE YOU CANJUST ASK THEM.

>> YOU JUST SAY WHAT'S MYPRONOUN?

>> PRONOUN FLUID, ALMOST.

WE CREATE ALL THIS ALL THE WAY.

>> THIS IS LIKE AN R&B MAKING UPWORDS...

>> Larry: Facebook HAD 56DIFFERENT GENDER

CLASSIFICATIONS.

SOME OF THOSE ARE BULL, RIGHT?

HOW MANY BATHROOMS WILL WE NEEDNOW?

>> ALL YOU NEED IS ONE BATHROOMTHAT'S GENDER NEUTRAL THAT'S

ONE-SEATER -->> Larry: NO URINALS?

IS THAT AN ATTACHMENT?

>> Larry: I LIKE TO STAND UP.

>> YOU CAN STILL STAND UP.

>> Larry: AND THEN YOU CANGLANCE. GOOD FOR YOU, MAN,

RIGHT? JUST SAYIN'!

>> I DON'T KNOW ABOUT THAT!

(TALKING AT THE SAME TIME)>> I'M JUST SCARED OF MYSELF AND

LIFE.

>> Larry: MAYBE WHEN IT COMESTO BATHROOMS AND LOCKER ROOMS,

WE SAY, OKAY, GUYS, GENDER,WHATEVER YOU HAVE GOING ON,

FINE.

P'S OVER HERE AND V'S OVER HERE.

>> THERE SHOULD BE A LOCKER ROOMETIQUETTE BUT ON BEHALF OF

CISGENDER PEOPLE.

THEY SHOULD LEARN HOW TO ACTRIGHT AROUND TRANSGENDER PEOPLE

IN THOSE SPACES.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)>> A FINISHING SCHOOL FOR

CISGENDER PEOPLE AROUND HOW TOACT RIGHT AROUND TRANS PEOPLE.

>> Larry: THE OTHER THINGTHAT'S VERY DIFFICULT, ARE YOU

ALLOWED TO ASK PEOPLE ABOUT THETRANSITION THING?

BECAUSE THERE IS CONTROVERSYYOU'RE NOT ALLOWED TO ASK

SOMEONE LIKE THAT.

LET'S IMAGINE OUR BODIES ARE AHONDA CIVIC.

CAN I JUST SAY, SO, ANDYOU'RE -- YOUR IDENTITY IS THE

PERSON WHO OWNS THE HONDA CIVIC.

SO HAVE YOU PIMPED YOUR RIDE ORIS IT UNDER THE ORIGINAL

WARRANTY?

CAN WE SAY IT LIKE THAT?

>> NO, YOU CAN'T.

YOU PIMPED YOUR RIDE?

HERE'S THE THING...

IT'S THE WEIRDEST THING ON THEPLANET TO ME THAT TRANSPEOPLE

ARE THE ONLY PEOPLE REQUIRED TOTELL YOU WHAT'S UNDERNEATH THEIR

CLOTHING.

(APPLAUSE)WHY ON EARTH ARE TRANS PEOPLE --

NO ONE GOES AROUND ASKING YOUIF --

>> Larry: WE ALL GOTSOMETHING, BROTHER.

AIM REQUIRED TO SAY WHY I'M INTHIS AREA, RIGHT?

(LAUGHTER)WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK AFTER THIS!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)>> Larry: THAT'S ALL THE TIME

WE HAVE FOR TONIGHT.

I WANT TO THANK OUR PANELISTSJORDAN CARLOS, IAN HARVEY

GEENA ROCERO AND COLIN QUINN

BUT BEFORE WE GO TONIGHT, I WANTTO KEEP IT 100, BUT I'M NOT

GOING TO ANSWER A QUESTION.

I'M JUST GOING TO MAKE A QUICKSTATEMENT ABOUT THE RIOTS AND

LOOTING GOING ON IN BALTIMORETODAY.

THERE'S A LOT OF ANGER AND A LOTOF FRUSTRATION IN THE COMMUNITY

OVER WHAT SEEMS TO BE A RASH OFPOLICE KILLING UNARMED BLACK

MEN.

BUT THE ANSWER IS NOT LOOTINGAND RIOTING OR RANDOM ACTS OF

VIOLENCE.

LET'S NOT FORGET, IT WAS ACTS OFVIOLENCE THAT GOT US HERE IN THE

FIRST PLACE.

THE EVENTS ARE STILL UNFOLDING,SO I CAN'T GET TOO SPECIFIC.

BUT THERE IS ONE THING THAT IKNOW FOR CERTAIN WHEN IT COMES

TO FREDDIE GRAY -- THIS IS NOTTHE WAY TO HONOR THIS YOUNG

MAN'S LIFE, ESPECIALLY ON THEDAY OF HIS FUNERAL.

GOODNIGHTLY EVERYONE
