Transgender Issues on NPR

9 May

I happen to hear a great story on NPR yesterday about one particular family with a young transgender child and learned that they’ve done a few pieces on this subject in the past couple days. It’s a subject that interests me and living in San Francisco, certainly an issue that comes up on a regular basis. And, even here in San Francisco, there is still violence and prejudice against the transgender community and more than a little confusion.

I hope these links are informative, interesting and enlightening!

    Star and I both listened to this, it really lets you know how difficult this is to both the kids and family.
