Anderson Cooper is set to discuss the social and emotional issues faced by both transgender children and their parents on today's installment of his daytime talk show.
According to his website, Anderson "speaks with experts to get a better understanding of the medical and psychological aspects of transgenders, and how these families are faced with new scientific options that would allow their kids to change their gender." He will also chat with Domaine Javier, a transgender woman recently expelled from college for applying as a female, and Kyle Allums, the first transgender Division 1 basketball player.
Among his guests are Danann, who insisted she was a girl despite being born male, and whose parents helped her make the transition to living as a girl at age six. “It was like night and day… a totally different child,” says Danann's mother.
Sunday will mark the International Transgender Day Of Remembrance to memorialize those who have been killed, attacked or bullied out of transphobia.
