'American Transgender' Looks at the Lives of Three Trans People and Their Families, Tonight: VIDEO


Tonight at 8pm ET, NatGeo is airing American Transgender, a look into the lives of three transgender people and their families.

Watch a preview featuring Eli Strong which looks at the physical aspects of gender reassignment, AFTER THE JUMP...

Said Strong to the National Center for Transgender Equality about making the doc: "I was able to have conversations with my family that I’d never been able to have. I was able to show how ‘normal’ my life is. It also gave me the opportunity to give voice to some of my own struggles, as well as some of those I’ve heard from my trans peers."

Make sure not to miss a Towleroad headline by following @TLRD on Twitter.

  1. Damn. I really wanted to watch "My Week with Marilyn" tonight. May have to watch this instead.

  2. Dooo it! Marilyn is on demand :) (I might be a little partial) I'm lucky to have Eli in my life, and I'm totally wishing I'd gotten off my butt and taken more pictures of him during the first year of transition...

  3. Eli is a pretty hot man. He should be very happy with his transition.

  4. It infuriates me when I hear talk about genders being "reassigned". Transmen and Transwomen are born into their proper genders, just like everyone else is. If they wish to alter their birth bodies to feel more comfortable in their gender, that's their prerogative; but there is no such thing as changing genders!!! Body parts do not determine what gender you are; science confirms it:

    There is at least one gender that exists between binary male and female. It is every bit as natural as the others are. Why is humanity so stubborn in refusing to learn this basic truth?

  5. Ohhh so Wikipedia is now "science"? LOL. And anyways, why do you care if someone wants to say they changed their gender? Its really none of your business.
