Debi Jackson lives with her husband and two children in Kansas City, Missouri. She has become an advocate for transgender rights and acceptance because of her daughter. She now speaks openly about her family to provide others with a personal connection to learn about transgender youth, using her story to prove that families can be supportive of LGBT issues. She has been interviewed by media across the US, the UK, France, Greece, Russia, South Africa, Colombia and Brazil. Debi was awarded the 2016 NEA GLBT Caucus Role Model Award for her contributions to education about the LGBTQ+ community. Her daughter, Avery, has also told her own story in a children’s book and was featured on a cover of the “Gender Revolution” issue of National Geographic magazine.
