Detransition Awareness Day: Hear Their Stories

Today is Detrans Awareness Day, a day dedicated to bringing attention to those men and women who previously identified as transgender but have now detransitioned back to their biological gender. The group in charge has scheduled events across the country and provided a variety of materials to educate people about the process of detransitioning. While you might not be able to attend one of these events, here are some ways that you can support detransitioners.

Detransition can be defined as: the stopping or reversal of transitioning which could be social (gender presentation, pronouns), medical (hormone therapy), surgical, or legal.

Learn More About Their Experience

We recently interviewed Kallie Fell on our podcast, “Family Policy Matters.” Kallie is a part of the team that produced the documentary The Detransition Diaries: Saving Our Sisters, which tells the stories of three girls who detransitioned from living life as boys.

In this interview, Kallie shared that part of their motivation for the project was they were finding that, “Detransitioners were being silenced, being vilified by the medical community, and their voices weren’t being heard.” Their stories are some of the best examples of the dangers of transgenderism, and their voices deserve to be heard.

It clarifies some confusing terminology, outlines some of the health consequences, debunks some popular myths, and offers guidance so that parents can create a culture that is based on truth and compassion.

Stay Alert to Transgender Messaging

As the culture continues to increasingly celebrate and promote the transgender lifestyle, it is vital to remain aware of the messages that we are consuming. Recently, American Girl released a book encouraging children to pursue hormone blockers if they were experiencing gender dysphoria, and this is just one example of a household name giving into woke culture and promoting this ideology directly to children.


The individuals who have detransitioned are being incredibly brave for speaking out against the dominant culture and sharing the painful details of their experience. It is critical that we not only acknowledge them and their message, but that we learn from their experiences and prevent children from following in their path.
