Hi, I'm Marlo Mack. I’m a single mom raising a young transgender daughter. We live in Seattle.
With my daughter's help, I produce How to Be a Girl, an audio podcast about our life together and the challenges we face.
I also write a blog, www.gendermom.com. You can learn a lot more about us there. Or you can watch this cartoon I made about how our story began.
In 2017, How to Be a Girl was a Peabody Finalist, and was honored with a Webby Award and selected as the 'Best International Podcast' by the British Podcast Awards. (We're still trying to process all this...)
HTBAG is a proud member of a scrappy little collective of independent podcasters called The Heard. They produce some amazing stories and I hope you'll check them out:
Marlo Mack is a pseudonym. I want to let my daughter decide - when she's a bit older - who gets to know that she's transgender. So I'm keeping our identities private for now. I hope you will understand and respect that.
