“And I was still the same person.”

Les, Scott, Thea, and Amanda

After 10 years of marriage and two children, Les and Scott were struggling. Les had a secret that caused him to fall into a deep depression, pulling away from his family. Finally, Scott confronted Les, and their family changed forever. 

At StoryCorps, their family talked about how they supported Les throughout his gender transition and how love served as the foundation of their relationships.

This animation includes two interviews, both recorded in 2010.

Listen to the family’s original StoryCorps interview.
