A transgender girl has been featured on the cover of National Geographic.

Avery Jackson, who has campaigned for equality for years, is featured on the latest special issue of National Geographic.

The issue is focussed on ‘Gender Revolution’.

“The best thing about being a girl is, now I don’t have to pretend to be a boy,” Jackson is quoted on the cover as saying.

Stories of trans and gender non-confirming young people are featured in the issue.

It also investigates the impact friends, family and communities have had on trans and non-binary people.

The special issue being sent to subscribers will feature Jackson, and another version with a group photo will go on newsstands.

The digital copy of the magazine will be available on January 3.

The 8-year-old earlier this year raised enough funds to open a Transgender House across from the Westboro Baptist Church.
