Exclusive: Morgan Freeman Meets With Transgender Woman in Afghanistan

Victoria Khan shares her experience of finally feeling comfortable in her gender presentation.

On tonight's launch of Nat Geo's new series The Story of Us With Morgan Freeman, Freeman meets with Victoria Khan, a transgender woman from Afghanistan who tells him about her experience finally feeling "free" in her body. Khan faced numerous horrors during her childhood in war-torn Afghanistan. When she was finally given the opportunity to flee, she became worried she'd be separated from her sister, so she put on a burka -- and in presenting as a woman for the first time, she finally felt comfortable in her gender identity.

The show airs tonight at 9/8 Central on Nat Geo. You can also view the episode here.
