IMG_4383.jpgIf you don't know Eden Lane, you're missing one of our community's most valuable assets. She is the first transgender woman to work as a television journalist and, as a colleague and friend, I can't think of anyone more deserving of broader exposure.

A petition has been launched at targeting Bill Geddie, Executive Producer of The View, and the show's co-creator Barbara Walters to invite Eden to guest host the program. She would be the first transgender host for the popular television show.

I know, I know. I swore I wouldn't link to again after the site announced they would start accepting petitions from right wing organizations if the groups paid them money. In this case, I'll make an exception to my moral objections. Eden is just that good at her job.

Go sign the petition. Let's get Eden on The View.
