Raising a Transgender Kid

Dec 18, 2013

Thursday, we're talking about what journalist Sabrina Rubin Erdely calls the final frontier of the LGBT movement: transgender youth. More parents and communities are debating how to raise kids who behave in ways that don't match their sex. Erdely joins us to talk about a Colorado family who sued their school for their child's right to be a girl. We'll also talk to Eri Hayward and her father. Eri is a young transgender woman from Utah County who, with the support of conservative LDS family, traveled to Thailand this summer for sexual reassignment surgery.
