Summary
Rebekah Robertson's extraordinary personal story of raising her transgender child, Georgie Stone, who has become a voice not just for other transgender kids but for a whole generation. As public awareness of transgender issues increases, this is the inside story from the mother of one of the brightest young stars of the Australian transgender movement. Tender and full of compassion, ABOUT A GIRL is a story of acceptance and the power of a mother's love. In 2000, Rebekah Robertson gave birth to twin boys, George and Harry. But by the age of three it was clear Georgie was drawn to anything that was pretty or had a skirt that could swirl. Before long Georgie began to insist that she was a girl and became distressed that she had to hide who she really was when she started school. Soon the bullying started and she would come home in floods of tears, begging her mother to help her. Rebekah and her husband Greg, conflicted at first about how to proceed, united in their determination to help her live freely and fearlessly. To ensure Georgie had access to medical support before she hit puberty, they sought permission for her to begin puberty-blocking medication. Their case, Re: Jamie, was the start of the long road to justice for transgender children in Australia and became the basis of the 2018 landmark decision to remove the Family Court's jurisdiction. Georgie would go on to become one of the brightest stars of the Australian youth leadership landscape through her advocacy work. And Rebekah would found Transcend, a support network for transgender kids and their families in Australia. ABOUT A GIRL is a thought-provoking and profoundly moving true story. Above all, it is a celebration of family and diversity
