She has been featured in media since her parents became vocal advocates and she even helped raise money for a ‘Transgender House’ to be built across from notorious hate-mongers, Westboro Baptist Church.

 



 

The magazine issue will examine the cultural, social, biological and personal” aspects of gender identity.

“We wanted to look at how traditional gender roles play out all over the world, but also look into gender as a spectrum. There’s lots of coverage on celebrities, but there wasn’t an understanding on real people and the issues we face every day in classrooms or workplaces in regards to gender,” National Geographic’s Editor-in-Chief Susan Goldberg told NBC Out.
