At StoryCorps booths around the country, couples pair into an intimate space to share personal stories with each other.
Donna Jean Loy and Elizabeth Anne Jenkins are a transgender couple from Metairie who transitioned later in life after grappling with gender dysphoria for years.
As activists in the community, they not only shared their personal story, but wanted to address how their lives are impacted by the media.
Donna Jean and Elizabeth Anne originally met as moderators of Laura’s Playground, a suicide prevention website. Click the link below to hear about the first time they met face to face.
StoryCorps is a national initiative to record and collect stories of everyday people.
