Transgender children and youth have historically been a relatively invisible and powerless segment of the trans community.  More recently, mainstream media sources have begun to take interest in trans kids, but their perspectives are sometimes obscured in the media’s attempts to paint their existence as a “controversy.”

Enter TransWaves.  TransWaves is a podcast produced by the Trans Youth Equality Foundation, which interviews trans youth, allies, providers, activists, families, and more to bring the voices of the trans child movement to a wider audience. They offer varied perspectives from all generations and backgrounds on what it means to be a transgender youth in today’s world.  They are continually adding new episodes.

Check out all their episodes on soundcloud at (we’ve embedded a few sample podcasts at the bottom of this page!).
