Anderson Cooper Talks Trans Kids, Still Mum On His Sexuality

As we near Transgender Day of Remembrance (November 20), it’s fitting Anderson Cooper is devoting today’s episode of his syndicated daytime talk show, Anderson, to transgender children.


While children hardly have to consider themselves transgender to be bullied for their perceived gender identity,  parents can find themselves at a loss when trying to reach their trans kids. To help, Coop is bringing on Dr. Diane Ehrensaft, an expert on gender-nonconforming children and the author of Gender Made, Gender Born; Tammy Lobel, an 11-year-old girl who was born male; Domaine Javier, a transgender woman recently expelled from college for applying as a female; and trans basketball player Kyle Allums.

We can all bitch Cooper isn’t more open about his sexuality, but at least we can rest assured he won’t have nutjobs from the Family Council or other hate groups on the show to explain how these kids are ruining America.
