Monday, January 8, 2018: Transparenting - the real true story

Today on Women's Magazine Kate welcomes Janna Barkin and Mere Abrams to talk about parenting transgender kids. Janna is the author of the book, He's Always Been My Son, which traces her family's journey in supporting and raising their transgender son, Amaya. Mere is a therapist and gender specialist in private practice and also Clinical Research Associate and Study Coordinator, at University of California at San Francisco, Child and Adolescent Gender Center. Join us for an in-depth conversation about best practices, the differences between sex, gender and sexual orientation, and how sexism affects girls' gender identity.

Check out Mere’s blog “On all things nonbinary gender.” Another great resource is https://www.genderspectrum.org/. A free transgender conference on the East coast is given every year by Gender Spectrum. Lots more information is on the internet and YouTube.
