Child's Choice
Five-year-old George* Garcia asked his mother, Shannon, for a quarter. George wanted to make a wish at a well. He wasn't wishing for a pet dog or a super power-he had given it more thought than any other child would.

It's a parent's nightmare dilemma: experts say there's a fifty-fifty chance your child will attempt suicide before age 20. Should you opt for an experimental medical treatment that might prevent it?

[USA] [Commentary]
Remembering isn't easy
Among the many hats I wear, the heaviest is that which I don while chronicling those killed at the hand of anti-transgender violence. It is a responsibility that becomes harder and harder, as I strive to hold on to an ever-increasing number of names and places, dates and deaths. It never fully fades into the background, it is always with me to one extent or another. I would not wish the duty on anyone.

From Tiffany to Gabriel, to Zander
A photograph of Tiffany reminds Zander Keig of a little girl who didn't enjoy the frilly dresses her grandmother and mother forced her to wear. In their eyes, a young girl was to dress feminine-in pinks and purples-but Tiffany wasn't willing to wear anything other than pants, shorts and baggy shirts. With an annoyed face, her hands on her hips and legs spread, Zander remembers Tiffany, his female child self.
