One of Our Favorite Families: Jackson Family

by Hayley Miller April 07, 2016


Since coming out publicly as transgender, Avery Jackson, an 8-year-old girl, and her family have become advocates for transgender equality across the nation.

The Jackson family first made headlines when Avery’s mother, Debi, gave a speech for the Listen To Your Mother Show, a forum for people to tell stories of motherhood.

Shortly thereafter, Debi spoke at HRC Foundation’s second annual Time To THRIVE Conference, speaking about the importance of embracing your children and navigating gender identity with them.

Most recently, the family made headlines for advocating for a Transgender House in Topeka, Kansas.

“Imagine spending your life pretending to be someone you aren’t, to try to live to make everyone else in your world happy rather than yourself,” Debi said in an exclusive HRC video. “Since she has transitioned, she’s a completely different person. Her confidence in herself is off the charts.”

The family also attended the White House’s Easter Egg Roll as guests of HRC last month and hosted readings of I Am Jazz in support of transgender youth at a Kansas City, Missouri church.

by Derek de Koff September 26, 2016

Perhaps as you get dressed you look wistfully at the angel wings you hung up the night before, and then daintily go downstairs to make yourself a rejuvenating cup of dandelion root tea. [...]
