In celebration of PRIDE month, we are reposting a prior episode (originally released July 2019) on gender diversity and gender identification in children. In this episode we discuss when gender identity develops, review pronouns, and how to create a gender affirming environment.  We also discuss legal and medical options for gender affirming care in transgender youth and some of the controversies surrounding this topic. 

We thank Dr. Laura Kester- Prakash, adolescent medicine specialist at UCD for reviewing this episode, although we take complete responsibility for any errors or misinformation and acknowledge that some information may have changed since its original publication in 2019.
