A transgender girl will appear on the cover of National Geographic for the first time




“The best thing about being a girl is that now I don’t have to pretend to be a boy,” says the announcement of the issue dedicated to the gender revolution.

Avery Jackson from Kansas was born a boy, but at the age of 4 she realized that she was a girl, which she told her mother. "I'm so excited I can barely type... Thanks for Avery!" — Avery’s mother announced the news on her microblog. She later added on her Facebook page that she couldn’t figure out what brings her more joy: a photo of her daughter on the cover of a magazine or daddy’s tears of pride for his daughter, about whom he reads reviews.

In 2015, the whole of America followed the story of Avery's gender transition, who became the youngest transgender activist in the United States. Avery herself, as well as her parents, took part in the campaign, the goal of which is to spread the word that transgender children are no different from others.

The magazine will arrive to subscribers on December 27. The gender issue is dedicated to modern American standards of beauty, rapidly changing ideas about maximality, femininity and gender identity; a large block of materials touches on the cultural, social, biological and personal aspects of gender. facebook-white sharing button Share vk-white sharing button Share
