Friday radio show, ‘Beyond the Binary: The Power of Trans-Youth Stories’
This week at Carolina Public Press, we covered legislation concerning trans minors. On Aug. 7, North Carolina lawmakers are set to vote on House Bill 808, a bill that aims to prohibit surgical gender transition procedures and puberty blockers for minors. On Friday, we’ll be interviewing a trans youth and their mother about this legislation and the importance of sharing trans stories.
