– At age 15, Atlanta resident Connor Gillis came out as a lesbian.

A few years later, in college, Connor had another “coming out” of sorts this time, as a transgender person.

This week, Connor shares his story as part of a series on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth in Georgia, and the unique situations they face.

Chandra Thomas wrote the stories for the Juvenile Justice Information Exchange.

Recently, Thomas and Gillis sat down with WABE's Jim Burress to talk about the series.
