ABOUT THIS SERIES
The voices of transgender people are not often heard. They are grandmothers, ex-Marines, grade school children and leaders.
As a record number of states pass anti-transgender laws across the country, The Maine Monitor chronicled the stories of Maine’s transgender people and their struggle to be accepted and understood.
Their lives in a largely rural state can be especially difficult. They face bullying and isolation, and health resources are hard to come by.
