3. Always a Girl: Abby Stein on Gender Identity and Belonging Inside Brooklyn's Hasidic Community

Until she was about 20 years old, Abby Stein didn't know the term "transgender," let alone know that other transgender people existed. In this episode, we dive into the life of Abby Stein, a transgender author, activist, and former rabbi. Abby takes listeners into her home in a conservative Hasidic Jewish community in Brooklyn, New York. Engaged by the age of 18 to a woman she barely knew, Abby's raw and impassioned account helps us understand the complexity of living as one's authentic self.

In this episode we discuss LGBTQ+ advocacy, human rights abuses, and violations based on sexual orientation, and the importance of asking questions and creating spaces to discuss diversity and inclusion.

Learn from expert voices: Idit Klein, the President & CEO, Keshet, a national organization for LGBTQ equality in Jewish life and Zhan Chiam,  Coordinator of the Gender Identity and Gender Expression Programme At at ILGA World (International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association.

Finding Humanity is a production of Humanity Lab Foundation and Hueman Group Media. Our inaugural season is made possible in part by our collaborating partner, The Elders.
