(Monica Cole) The Public Broadcasting Service has approved “Growing Up Trans,” which aired June 30. Keep in mind that children and teens stay up later during the summer months. Obviously, PBS is attempting to desensitize America’s youth by airing a program starring children. This alone will entice kids to watch.
PBS’ website describes the program: “Just a generation ago, it was adults, not kids, who changed genders. But today, many children are transitioning, too—with new medical options, and at younger and younger ages. In ‘Growing Up Trans,’ a 90-minute special airing June 30 on PBS, FRONTLINE takes viewers on an intimate and eye-opening journey inside the struggles and choices facing transgender kids and their families.”
The show is attempting to normalize the transgender lifestyle and make it appear OK while using young cast members to lure a young audience. Many families have already discovered that PBS is anything but family-friendly. But 1MM thought a warning should still be sent out for anyone who continues to watch the channel.
PBS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and relies heavily on donations from sponsors.

Let them also know you are prepared to join thousands of other voices in urging sponsors to no longer financially support PBS.
