20/20 Trans Visibility: One Year Later

As some of you may recall, last year Barbara Walters positively profiled three trans children, their families, and some of the key challenges they experienced as consequences of standing up for fairness and equality in their communities. The interview sensitively chronicled these children’s personal narratives and experiences within their families, among their peer groups, and in their schools. This past Friday, producers of 20/20 followed up on this story to find out how these families continue to honor their children’s gender identities. All three of the families agreed that last year’s news coverage helped positively impact their families and their communities. For more information about this story, click here.
