TEDxBloomington 2014 speaker Christy Hegarty featured on PBS’s Frontline, “Growing up Trans”.

On Tuesday, June 30th, PBS’s Frontline is airing a program called “Growing up Trans” that features TEDxBloomington 2014 speaker, Christy Hegarty and her family’s story.
In conjunction with her appearance at TEDxBloomingtonWomen last month, Christy shared the following updates: ” It has been a pivotal year for the transgender community. There has been so much momentum regarding policy changes and overall education and exposure. My TEDx talk was a very small part in the movement but I do know that it has been helping many people to start conversations and awareness around acceptance. I do my best to reach out as often as I can and take part in activities in my community, in order to educate and advocate for the LGBQT community. I continue to be so grateful to everyone that has made it possible for my child to live her life just like any other typical child. We hope to get more involved in helping to educate the New Hampshire legislature and continue to work towards creating equal rights for all throughout our country.”

Watch Christy’s TEDx talk: https://youtu.be/TFL8yEql-GU and check your local PBS listings for broadcast details on the Frontline program.
