What We Will Become: A Discussion on Transgender Youth

Tuesday, Nov 17 2020

Hadassah Magazine Executive Editor Lisa Hostein moderates this important and informative program. Mimi Lemay is the author of the memoir What We Will Become: A Mother, a Son, and a Journey of Transformation, in which she chronicles her transgender child’s odyssey and her own personal journey navigating her ultra-Orthodox background to forge an authentic life for both of them. Publishers Weekly praised, “Engrossing and compassionate . . . This fascinating, heart-wrenching memoir offers invaluable insights into issues of gender identity.” Joining the conversation is Dr. Norman Spack, a noted pediatric endocrinologist who pioneered medical treatment of transgender teens and is the co-founder of Boston Children’s Hospital’s Gender Management Service clinic.
