Part 2 of 2 (January 1, 2018)
The way the U.S. views gender has been changing as newer generations recognize the limitations of the gender binary. Young people are increasingly challenging traditional gender norms: about half of the millennial generation agree that gender isn’t limited to male and female. As a result of this changing mindset, gender-fluid and nonbinary people have been able to carve out more of a space for themselves in society. Facebook now offer custom gender identities, many universities accept gender-neutral pronouns, and schools have seen a push to adopt gender-neutral bathrooms.
In this two part series, OutCaster Jamie talks with their friend Tori about Tori’s experiences as an agender person.
Part 2 also includes an essay by OutCaster Nico, who has been out as trans to most of his family and friends but curiously came out at OutCasting only recently.
