OTTAWA — Ottawa radio station The New HOT 89.9 has announced a contest for transgender people.
The contest page, titled “The New Normal,” invites transgender people to talk about their lives. The winner will receive $40,000 toward the cost of transition, though the contest does specify that the winner can use the funds at his or her discretion.
What do you think?
Is this radio station genuinely trying to do some good?
Or is it simply piggybacking its marketing onto the transgender bandwagon?
Either way, would you enter such a contest?
