Unabashed Queer TIVO Must: WE's "Sex Change Hospital"

Dr. Marci Bowers is the kind of doctor I would love: level-headed, down-to-earth, compassionate, and a post-op transsexual. Now that is real. Dr. Bower specializes in gynecology, pelvic and reconstructive surgery--another name for a sex-change operation . Admittedly, I wondered for a second if she performed her own sex-change like a hair-stylist who cuts her own hair.

This ground-breaking docu-reality show on WE (Women's Entertainment) profiles Dr. Bower's patients from pre-op to post-op delving into both their medical and personal experiences. And you should see some of the vaginae Dr. Bower created. I don't have much experience--actually, zero--in vaginae but these seem pretty damn good. "Sex Change Hospital" airs Tuesdays at 8pm on WE.
