National Geographic Magazine Puts Young Transgender Girl On Cover | NewNowNext

The January 2017 issue of National Geographic, focusing on “the gender revolution,” features a 9-year-old transgender girl, believed to be the first trans person on the 128-year-old publication’s cover.

 

“The best part of being a girl,” says Avery Jackson in the accompanying caption, “is, now I don’t have to pretend to be a boy.”

  1. It’s amazing to see the rapid progress in media covering Trans issues and people. I just hope they don’t trivialize how difficult the experience must be – and ultimately it’s the minds of the majority of the public that will need to open up. Someday, I hope this will become a non-issue. There certainly seems to be more awarness and compassion than there was say 20 years ago when it was all about a freak show. Progress, may it continue and do so with respect and dignity. Lots of love, Harlon
