Heath Ayden Martin-Cox: TYFA Speakers bio
Heath Ayden Martin-Cox is a young trans man who has begun his life journey into adulthood and now lives in Portland, Oregon, where he attends college and has obtained honorable recognition on the President’s Academic Scholar list by maintaining a 4.0 GPA. The mere suggestion that such an achievement would have been possible only a few years ago, before transition, should be a testament to parents who wonder if transitioning is the right thing for their child. Heath is available to speak on a first-hand basis to schools, universities, medical facilities, etc. regarding his experiences both pre- and post-transition. Heath loves children and is especially interested in working with young gender variant or transgender children as a role model.
