Flight attendant and transgender woman, Briar, called the show and told Chris Lynch she would like it to be easier for gender to be changed on birth certificates. 

She would like to change her gender on her birth certificate to female as for her it is unfinished business and she has made permanent physical changes to reflect that. 

Briar believes it is important for transgender people to take the public along the journey with them. She says the world hasn't changed as dramatically as we've changed. We've moved quite quickly and we're the ones who have done the changing so we are the ones who actually have to think about the others who may have difficulty with it and take them on that ride with us.
