Please join us this Tuesday at 6pm on Transpositive PDX on KBOO Community Radio for Transpositive PDX as we begin a series called "Meet Our Transgender Elected Officials" where we will be interviewing or talking live to Transgender elected officials as well as Transgender and Non Binary people running for office.  This week we will talk with Clair Elizabeth Hall who is an Oregon Transgender elected official.

Claire Hall was elected as a Lincoln County Commissioner in 2004 and re-elected in 2008, 2012 and 2016. Her professional experience prior to her election as a commissioner includes staff positions at KBPS public radio in Portland; the Newport News-Times; KZUS radio, Toledo; and Yaquina Bay Communications, Newport. 

Hall has been appointed to the Oregon Housing Stability Council. She previously served on the Governor’s Council on Alcohol and Drug Programs and was its final chair. She was co-chair of the Oregon Ending Homelessness Advisory Council. In 2018 she transitioned in the midst of serving her term in office.  Her transition was documented by the Oregonian.

Transpositive is a monthly program in Portland exploring themes important to those who identify as Transgender, Gender Non Binary and Gender Non-Conforming. Transpositive tries to connect listeners with the ongoing activist, arts, culture, and dialogue happening in Portland and beyond.
