Welcome to Behind the Byline, where we bring you insightful stories about Carolina Public Press’ investigative journalism. This week, we have another great show lined up for you as we speak with Rowan, a young trans person, and his mother Margaret. I'm your host, Lindsey Wilson, and today we will be exploring the nuances of transgender identity and the power of storytelling. 

Listen to our show titled "Beyond the Binary: The Power of Trans-Youth Stories" airing Friday, August 4th at 12:00 pm. In this episode, Rowan, Margret and Lindsey will talk about what the recent anti-trans legislation means for North Carolina’s young people. 

This week we are asking:

  • What is it like to speak publicly as a trans minor?
  • How does recent anti-trans legislation impact minors in North Carolina? 
  • How can telling the stories of trans youth impact legislation and political sentiment? 

Tune in to this episode of “Behind the Byline” to explore the challenges facing transgender minors in North Carolina and the recent legislation impacting their access to gender affirming health care.
