Part 1 of 2 (December 1, 2017)

 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.

oc-westchester-nicia-150Part 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.
