PRIDE MONTH: Meet Trans Singer-Songwriter Nick Lawrence

Pride Month continues on KALW’s Queer Power Hour with a special from Eric Jansen and Out in the Bay.

Eric sits down with singer-songwriter Nick Lawrence. Nick talks candidly about the transgender experience, being a parent, and his music career.

The episode includes songs from his album "I Am A Man," which is about his own transition.
