Dana Pardee Discusses Gender Identity
Dana Pardee Discusses Gender Identity

AIR DATE: October 24, 2012

Dana Pardee, a 23 year old male senior at UNR, has recently undergone surgery to transition from female to male. As a transgender individual, Dana is much happier now that his physical appearance on the outside matches who he has always been on the inside. Dana claims the issue goes unknown, especially in rural areas, and is ready to share his experience growing up in a conservative community, feeling like an outcast when attending the Catholic Church, and reactions from his family and friends.

    And by the way, to the gentleman doing the interview, your manner and attitude are appreciated. You were very factual, and not judgmental, and I as a family member appreciate that!

    This is my nephew! He is a most amazing person, as a male or female. Everyone who really knows him can't help but accept him, because he is essentially a wonderful, caring, GOOD, human being. Our family loves him beyond belief and wants only for him to be happy.
