You may have seen an item in Friday’s Policy Matters about HBO’s Vice News Tonight. Now, we have a sneak peek to share with you!

As previously published, on Friday, March 3rd, HBO will air a piece on transgender kids. We’re proud to partner with HBO on the episode; PFLAG will be offered as a resource at the end of the airing.

The producers say, “As the debate about which bathroom transgender people should use continues, a more complex question is emerging about how early the medical transition begins for trans kids. Families and doctors are rewriting the rules as they decide when and how to start medical intervention before transgender youth hit puberty. Gianna Toboni explores this emotionally charged and rapidly evolving issue with trans youth and their parents in the midst of this intense process.”

HBO has released this special advance trailer that we’re excited to share with you.

The episode is compelling, and the reporting is beautifully handled by Toboni as she speaks with kids and their families. We highly recommend sharing it with your social networks and asking people to tune in - it’s a great education piece, especially in light of recent activities around the Title IX guidance (see this piece in this edition of The Voice for more information).

We hope you’ll tune in. Visit hbo.com/vice for episode information, including air times.
