The interview will focus on Mock’s book, Redefining Realness, her bestselling coming-of-age memoir. Since its debut last year, Redefining Realness has won several awards and made it onto the New York Times Bestseller list.
In 2012, Mock launched the social media project #GirlsLikeUs, a movement that encourages trans women to live visibly. Since then, she has been named one of the “30 Most Influential People on the Internet” by Time magazine.
Mock took to her Facebook page to announce the interview, writing, “Pinches self! This is the interview I’ve been dreaming of.”
