About Eden Lane 

Veteran journalist Eden Lane knows about transitions. She made the transition from New York City performer to homemaker and stay-at-home mother, then to becoming the first transgender journalist and host on mainstream television in the United States. 

She is the creator, host and producer of “In Focus with Eden Lane,” a Colorado Pubic Television weekly program celebrating the arts and culture in Denver. Now in its fifth season, the weekly series has already featured over 150 original episodes spotlighting local and national music, theatre and arts. Eden has also served as a producer for CPT 12’s flagship LIVE Community Affairs program “Studio 12.” Additionally, Eden also hosts LIVE Auction Broadcasts. Eden relaunched her career focusing on community affairs, and political reporting for the PBS affiliate, and as a stringer for the Logo Cable Television Network.

More than a decade ago, she moved to Colorado as their daughter advance in school, Eden began volunteering on community projects. Eden’s interest in public affairs led to an appearance as an expert guest on CPT12 broadcasts. These appearances led to an even bigger opportunity-- the chance to host special segments for the outlet. The 2008 Presidential campaign expanded the coverage Eden was assigned, which led her towards an opportunity to build her own broadcast as a platform.

      Discrimination, is a form of bigotry and intolerance. I will be damned if someone thinks it's somehow elevating to be confined to a binder because of prejudices.

      Eden is a role model for all of us, transgender or not. She exemplifies the best in all of us.

      Because I have trans friends, and I think it would be important for all The View's viewers to see how trans folk are just normal, ordinary people who have faced extraordinary circumstances.
