ImageNational Public Radio’s Martha Bebinger presents her intimate interview with a transgender teen and his family.  The three-part audio series explores the challenges facing transgender teenagers through the story of Nate, a 16-year-old transgender male in Massachusetts.

Nate’s parents have an endless stream of questions: Is Nate rejecting life as girl after being bullied by a clique in middle school? Is Nate really a tough lesbian, as he seemed to be at age 14? Or, Jackie asks, “Is this something — I feel terrible saying it — is it a phase? Are you going to change your mind in a few years?”

The article, Nate’s Transgender Story, is broken down into 3 parts, each with intimate videos of family discussions, warm family photos, text of the interview, and transgender resources.
