Transgender KidsDownload audio (MP3)
Some young boys insist on wearing dresses and identifying as a girl, and some young girls do the opposite. Parents are often left to puzzle out whether it's a passing phase, or if a child will grow up feeling stuck in the wrong body. We discuss issues facing gender variant kids, and a conference aiming to support them and their families this weekend in Berkeley.
Host: Michael Krasny
- Diane Ehrensaft, developmental and clinical psychologist working with transgender families
- Joel Baum, director of education and training for Gender Spectrum
- Rachel Beckert, mother of a transgender seven year old
