The small town of Trinidad, Colorado has been deemed the sex-change capital of the United States, thanks to one transgender doctor's private practice and the Rocky Mountain town's tolerant community. In 2003, Dr. Marci Bowers (formerly Mark Bowers) took over the nation's first private practice for gender reassignment (commonly known as a sex-change) in Trinidad and became an important part of the economic stimulus of the small mountain community, which is visited by some 300 people a year looking for surgical reassignment. For the most part, the town has been welcoming of the business that Dr. Bowers' private practice brings to the town and some townspeople are even proud of their sex-changing doctor. Isn't it nice to see a community so tolerant of other people's lifestyle choices? That's one "small town value" we'd like to see certain politicians adopt. [CBS]
