National Geographic Puts 9-Year-Old Transgender Girl On Their January Cover

The January 2017 issue of National Geographic will be a historic one: it is the publication’s first issue to feature a transgender person on the cover.

Sitting pretty on the magazine’s cover is 9-year-old Avery Jackson, a transgender girl from Kansas City. “Gender Revolution” is displayed in large type across the cover. The magazine told Attn: Avery is the first ever transgender person to be featured on the magazine’s front page.

Avery is the perfect choice for this historic milestone. She’s representative of the growing visibility of transgender people, and she drives the point home that being transgender isn’t a choice, but just something you are. In a quote that accompanies Avery’s picture on the cover, Avery says “the best thing about being a girl is, now I don’t have to pretend to be a boy.”
