Les and Scott GrantSmith had been married for 10 years and were raising two children when Les shared a secret he feared would ruin their life together. Born female, Les felt like a man in the wrong body, and wanted to transition. In this tender short animation from StoryCorps, Scott, Les and their two children Thea and Amanda recall how, after a period of uncertainty, Les’s transition ultimately strengthened their family bond.
