Description

"I've always loved my body, and now I love it even more because it fits how I feel." --Jessy

"Learn your pronouns because I don't want to have to slap somebody tonight." --Christina

"Transition? Everyone goes through one kind of transition or another. We go through transitions every day. Except mine is maybe a little more extreme." --Mariah

"Being trans is not the next step to being gay. They are similar in that they are both breaking gender rules." --Cameron

"When people say I look male or female, it messes up my head." --Nat

"My family was okay with me being gay, but trans was a different issue for them. I think a lot of it was because they had no experience with it." --Luke

In Beyond Magenta, six teens tell what it is like for them to be members of the transgender community.
