The award-winning newsmagazine IN THE LIFE presents Becoming Me, featuring eight families with transgender and gender nonconforming children ranging in ages from 5 to 25. While mainstream media coverage has portrayed transgender children as a spectacle, Becoming Me forgoes the sensationalism with this sensitive look into the real-life experience of families whose children fall across the gender spectrum. With the healthy development of their children at stake, parents must confront binary perceptions of gender, widespread transphobia and controversial parenting decisions. Becoming Me airs on public television stations across the country and will be available for free video streaming from the In The Life Media website. To find out when it will air in your local area, or to stream it, go to ITLMedia.org.
