He’s Roscoe!

Please read this great article from Matthew Carnahan, the creator, executive producer, and writer of “House of Lies” about creating the young character of Roscoe who is “based loosely on several children I’ve met over the years whose gender identities have come differently from those of the majority of their peers.”

It’s an interesting read about how best to think about children who might identify as transgender (as themselves).  It also speaks to the difference between gender identity and sexual orientation.  In its most simple form, gender identity is the gender that you identity as, and sexual orientation is the gender of who you are attracted to.

Check it out here.

Do you have questions about what it means to be transgendered?  Please call or start a chat.
