Janet Mock interview sparks new questions about transgender community

Author Janet Mock recently appeared on CNN’s Piers Morgan Live to discuss her new book, Redefining Realness: My Path to Womanhood, Identity, Love & So Much More. When the interview aired, Mock and others took issue with how Morgan questioned the author, claiming he focused too heavily on her transition from male to female, and less on the experiences she outlines in the memoir. Some defended Morgan, saying there’s still ignorance on how we talk about the real issues that matter in the transgender community. Mock joins us to explain how the media and the public can evolve the conversation.
