What is 'God's Image'? Transitioning from Man to Woman, Yiscah Smith Finds Her Authentic Self23 March 2023
Yiscah Smith decided it was time to stop lying and face her authentic self. She could no longer hide the truth: She was a woman stuck in a man's body. Once a religious man, married with six children, Yiscah decided to undergo surgery and become the woman she had always been in her soul. On the eve of Passover, a holiday about the Jewish exodus from Egypt, VOI's Molly Livingstone explores the issue of freedom -- that of being true to oneself. She and Yiscah discuss the challenges and rewards of making such a journey. Yiscah shares her story of transitioning; her relationship with God and faith; her message as a transgender activist; and how we all have the potential to find ourselves.
