A teaser for Monday’s episode of “Red Table Talk” is finally here.
In the first look at the new episode, hosts Jada Pinkett-Smith, her mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris and daughter Willow Smith chat with Pastor Paula Williams, a transgender woman, about risking her job and the relationships around her by coming out as transgender.
“I meant to ask you, if you could describe to us a bit what your life was like for you as Paul, knowing inside that you were someone else?” Pinkett-Smith asked her guest.
“It was tough,” Williams explained. “I mean, I knew by the time I was 3 or 4 that I was transgender. So [I thought] it’s like the gender fairy will arrive and I will choose what I am a girl and of course it didn’t happen.”
And she knew that living as a boy wasn’t living her truth.
“I didn’t hate being a boy, I just knew I wasn’t one,” she added. “But the longer life went, the more it’s like, ‘I don’t want to do this to my family,’ but it was a call.”
The new episode of “Red Table Talk” premieres Monday on Facebook Watch.
