The experience of being  an openly gay, transgendered or bisexual teen has changed dramatically, just in the past few years. It's especially evident for those young adults who choose to come out to friends and family while they're in high school.

On Monday's Up to Date, psychologist Wes Crenshaw joins us with a few teen guests to talk about their experiences with the rapid change in attitudes.

Guests:

  • Dr. Wes Crenshaw, psychologist
  • Matt, an openly gay senior at Lawrence High School
  • Casey, a transgendered female-to-male freshman at a local college
