Discovering Our Scars, Episode 127

Beth Demme Blog

In this episode, “One of My Twins is Transgender (with Lisa),” Steph and I talk with the mom of a transgender son. Lisa thought she had a son and twin daughters, but by age four one of the twins began to describe themselves differently. Now, Lisa has a son and boy/girl twins. She generously shares with Steph and me how she knew her child’s gender expression was not a phase, but was an accurate description of who he is.
