     Avery Jackson, a young transgender girl featured in HRC’s Moms for Transgender Equality video series, is on the cover of National Geographic’s new special issue on the “Gender Revolution.”

“The best thing about being a girl is, now I don’t have to pretend to be a boy,” Avery says in a quote on the cover.

     Avery’s mother, Debi Jackson, was the subject of one of HRC’s Moms for Transgender Equality videos and is a member of HRC’s groundbreaking Parents for Transgender Equality Council.
The issue shares stories of transgender and gender-expansive youth, as well as the impact their families, friends and communities have had on their transition. National Geographic visited 80 homes on more than four continents to collect these vital stories.
