Gender Bending (and Back Again) on MSNBC

If you don’t care to watch the closing ceremony of the Beijing games or some re-runs on the broadcast nets or Geraldo on FNC, or Nancy Grace on HLN re-hash the Caylee Anthony story, you could watch the premiere of a new MSNBC doc, which tackles the subject of reverse gender reassignment.

According to a press release, “Born in the Wrong Body: Change of Heart,” “invites viewers into the lives of Josef Kirchner and Michael Burke, also known as ‘Judy’ and ‘Michelle,’ and shares the story of their extraordinary journey from man to woman… and back again.”

The special premieres tonight Sunday night at 10pmET on MSNBC.
