Transgender: Your Part of the Story - Nicole Maines

2016
13m 20s
USA
Produced by: TEDX

Nicole Maines tells her story of growing up openly transgender and how she came to accept herself. She couldn't have done it alone, however. While family support is essential, Nicole Maines insists it isn’t enough. Family and community must work together to provide the space for transgender youth to find their own voice and to feel valued as individuals. And it all begins with the power of listening. Nicole Maines is a student, transgender youth activist and supporter of LGBT change. In 2014, she and her family won a lawsuit against her former school after being forced to use the staff bathroom instead of the girls’ bathroom. Maine’s Supreme Court ruled that Nicole’s rights had been violated, marking a historic and landmark victory for transgender rights in the U.S.Now an Arts and Theatre student at the University of Maine, Nicole continues to fight for LGBT change. She has been featured on Maine Public Radio, Good Morning America, ABC Nightline, Atlantic Magazine Live, and the Boston Globe. She was named one of Glamour magazine’s “50 Phenomenal Women of the Year Who Are Making a Difference” and is the subject of “Becoming Nicole: The Transformation of an American Family,” written by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Amy Ellis Nutt.This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
