Jesse Costa
Hallel with their mother in the family’s living room.

A few years ago, Hallel came out as a “boy-girl” to their parents. This week on NEXT, 9-year-old Hallel and their family explore gender identity. Plus, we learn about a new Connecticut law banning race-based hair discrimination in the workplace and in schools. And we hear from newcomers to New Hampshire about whether they plan to stay in the state after the pandemic. NEXT podcasts from New England News Collaborative airs each Monday on The Point.
