National Geographic Has First Transgender Cover Model


National Geographic Has First Transgender Cover Model

For their January 2017 issue, National Geographic is making history with their first transgender person to appear on the cover. The entire issue will be focused on the ongoing cultural conversations about gender, both in terms of our widening understanding of its spectrum and how our current gender understandings reflect in our day-to-day experiences, both positively and negatively.”We wanted to look at how traditional gender roles play out all over the world, but also look into gender as a spectrum. There’s lots of coverage on celebrities, but there wasn’t an understanding on real people and the issues we face every day in classrooms or workplaces in regards to gender,” said Editor-in-Chief Susan Goldberg.

Meet the cover girl.

Nine-year-old Avery Jackson was chosen to appear on the subscriber edition, quoted below her photo as saying, “The best thing about being a girl is, now I don’t have to pretend to be a boy.”
