Transgender Character Added To ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Roster

by The Next Family December 24, 2014

Grey's Anatomy


The second half of Grey’s Anatomy, which won’t premiere until the end of January, will be introducing a new character, Travis.

“Travis, a male-to-female transgender person will begin to make the rounds at Grey Sloan Memorial [starting in January],” the website said.

Details of the character, including who will be playing Travis, have been kept extremely under wraps.

Shonda Rhimes, executive producer, said her writers “are not afraid of controversy.” The show has put a major focus on sexuality, with Dr. Callie Torres realizing her bisexuality and Dr. Arizona Robbins as one of the first openly lesbian characters on primetime television.

Additional details about the show aren’t out yet, but a few upcoming episode titles include: “The Bed’s Too Big Without You” and “The Great Pretender.”

Grey’s Anatomy returns to ABC Thursday, January 29 at 7/8 p.m. central.

Representation of Modern Families in Kid-Friendly Entertainment

By Alex Temblador

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines. My reasoning behind doing so was because every family deserves a chance to see similar families like theirs represented in various forms of entertainment.
