The Lowdown with Ira Wood, WMOR, Provincetown, October 18, 2016

On October 18, 2016, I was interviewed by the incomparable Ira Wood on WOMR. Touching on topics from gender to sexuality and all those in between, this interview gives insight into my book and my experience as the partner of a transgender man. Take a listen...

Inside The Pages, Wellfleet Preservation Hall, October 20, 2016

"Ali read excerpts from her recently published memoir, I Know Who You Are, But What Am I?, and spoke candidly about her experience of living, coping and learning with a partner transitioning from female to male. Her Presentation and following Q&A was one of the most moving, illuminating and educational events we've produced at our venue. Peppered with humor and articulated with a fresh frankness, Ali's story resonated with unaffected honesty, meaning and profound resilience. It was quite clear that a great need exists for stories like Ali's to be shared. Her wise and down-to-earth insights into this unique but not uncommon circumstance, coupled with a brilliant sense of humor and rare openness make Ali an incredible educational resource. We were honored to be part of Ali's vital mission to spread awareness about the very real and often frightening, challenges of the transgender community."
