Gender Transitions 101: Two different perspectives; one universal message.
Khosla will share the story of his medical transition from female-to-male while working as a staff attorney at the federal courts, as well as behind-the-scenes highlights of his high profile press tour and how his use of personal vs. political language – especially during the most challenging moments — helped bridge both political and religious divides.
Terri Cook, a mother, engineer, and author of Allies & Angels, learned the child she thought was her daughter is really her son. Terri shares her family’s journey supporting their son’s transition from female-to-male. The story integrates Trans 101 content and highlights the company practices, policies and environment that allowed Terri and her husband to excel in the workplace.

Khosla’s short film, “The Temple Beyond Tolerance” directed and produced by Northcutt/Loften Productions, was screened at Hollywood’s Rebel Planet Short Film Festival and won second place in the Documentary Category. The film was scripted and scored by Khosla and features original songs from Khosla’s album “The Temple.”
In The Temple Beyond Tolerance, Khosla takes us through his very personal story of having been born in the wrong body — and the extraordinary measures he took to find his way home. Rather than using his story to indict or expose the intolerance of others, he instead reveals the shadows of intolerance within himself and how he set about transforming those shadows into light.
The judges who awarded Khosla second place at the Hollywood film festival included producer (Doug Drazin (“Fools Rush In”), Producer Sean Covel (“Napolean Dynamite), Casting Director Bob Morones (“Scarface”, “Platoon”), and Animator/Producer “Calvin Brown” (“The Proud Family”).
The film was also selected for screening at the Breckenridge film festival (www.breckfilms.com), the oldest film festival in the United States.

Khosla’s book Both Sides Now was purchased for publication in Italy by Ediznoi II Punto D’Incon. It was released under the name “Due Vite in Una” (Two lives in One).
Khosla collaborated with producer Johannes Luley of My Sonic Temple in creating a new, updated version of his album, “The Temple.” Luley – whose discography includes a two-time grammy nominated album – brings a new dimension and style to the album. The new version has been mastered and will eventually be duplicated for release following publication of Khosla’s upcoming written works.
