Avery Jackson, a young transgender girl featured in HRC’s Moms for Transgender Equality video series, is on the cover of National Geographic’s new special issue on the “Gender Revolution.”
“The best thing about being a girl is, now I don’t have to pretend to be a boy,” Avery says in a quote on the cover.
The issue shares stories of transgender and gender-expansive youth, as well as the impact their families, friends and communities have had on their transition. National Geographic visited 80 homes on more than four continents to collect these vital stories.
The issue also features Trinity Neal, whose mother, DeShanna Neal, is another member of HRC’s Parents for Transgender Equality Council. The Council is a coalition of the nation’s leading parent-advocates working for equality and fairness for transgender people. Click here to join.
As it is customary with many subscription magazines, there are two covers of the special issue. The issue that is being mailed to subscribers features Avery on the cover and the one on newsstands features a group photo. Both contain the same content inside the magazine.
The digital copy of the magazine will be available on January 3.
