More than 1,500 New Yorkers gathered today in Manhattan to mourn the death of a 32 year-old gay man, who was shot down on Friday just blocks away from the historic Stonewall Inn in an apparent act of anti-gay bias.
Groundbreaking Dr. Oz Show on Transgender Children Airs Thursday, Feb 18
GLAAD is pleased to announce that on Thursday, February 18th “The Dr. Oz Show” will be airing one of the best 15-minute segments on transgender children to ever appear on national television.
Dr. Oz hosted two transgender children and their families on his show to discuss their experiences growing up and their parents’ decision to support them in their true identity. Representatives from GLAAD and Trans Youth Family Allies were present for the live taping, and we were happy to witness the overwhelming respect and accuracy with which Dr. Oz presented and discussed a topic that has often been mishandled by media professionals.
We encourage all supporters to watch this groundbreaking episode on February 18th. Check here for your local show times/channels. Please check back after it airs for our overview blog.
