Transgender Students on Prince Edward Island

Jay Jonah and Trevor Williams have a lot in common.
They both go to school at the University of Prince Edward Island.
They were both born female, but now identify as male.
And, because of that, they both face challenges many of us would never think about...such as which public bathroom to use.
This week on Maritime Magazine, the CBC's Julia Cook talks to Jay and Trevor about the struggle to re-define themselves, in a society that only sees people as male or female.
