KQED’s Michael Krasney aired a show today on gender-nonconforming kids and the Gender Spectrum conference, which will happen in Berkeley this weekend. I will be leading two workshops, one on writing and one on the challenges of raising gender-nonconforming kids.
Director of Education and Training at Gender Spectrum Joel Baum and psychologist Diane Ehrensaft, as well as Rachel Becker, the mother of a transgender seven-year-old, spoke eloquently about the challenges faced by children and parents who are broadening the definition of gender from the old binaries of boy and girl to, well, a spectrum.
The show is well done and worth a listen–and your comments. I hope to see many of my readers this weekend at the conference!
