Family Circle magazine features its first family with a transgender child in new issue

In their August 2015 issue, Family Circle magazine featured its first family with a transgender child. For the past year, the magazine has been running a "Modern Life" column every month. This month the column features an interview with Jodie Patterson, the mother of Penel, her 7 year old transgender son.

The interview touches on topics such as acceptance among family, acceptance among classmates, and misconceptions about transgender children. The column is available to read here.

Last year, Family Circle defended a "Modern Life" column featuring a same-sex couple and their family life.

Family Circle is an 83-year old publication released monthly, and has a readership of over 18 million people.
