Growing up transgender and Mormon
Eri Hayward is a young transgender woman. Born with male genitalia, she felt drawn to a female identity from a very young age. But it was difficult for her to understand and accept herself, particularly in the environment of the Church of Latter-Day-Saints, in which she was raised. “Being LDS was our life,” she explains, “It’s one of the reasons I didn’t find out what being trans was until I was an adult.”
Listen as Eri and her parents talk about coming to terms with her identity in the context of their faith.
