A new short video from National Geographic tells the story of a trans teenager going through her gender confirmation surgery so that she can live the genuine life she deserves. Emmie Smith revealed her story congruent to NatGeo’s January “Gender Revolution” issue.
In the specific article titled “Rethinking Gender” Smith, who has a cisgender identical twin, told National Geographic that she hopes the film will help with a growing public understanding about the nuances of gender confirmation surgery.
