You’ll hear from our field reporters Sophie Ciurlik-Rittenbaum and Robson Swift, who interview transgender teens about their experiences with gender expression and coming out, reflecting on how different people relate to gender.
“Gender is a double edged sword. You can use it to assert yourself in a powerful and undeniable way, yet it can be used to cut you down, limit your selfhood and your expression…My main wish with gender is that it’s not seen as a dichotomy that you either choose one or the other, but as a set of characteristics or a set of ways you can express yourself.”-Robson Swift
