Welcome to This Broad’s Life, a new Jezebel video series in which Hillary Crosley Coker trails interesting and kick-ass women as they navigate this thing called life.

First up is Janet Mock, author of Redefining Realness, host of MSNBC’s Shift show So Popular!, trans activist, and a Hawaiian crazy enough to leave all that warmth behind for east coast winters. Mock kindly let our Jezebel team hang out with her on the coldest day in New York’s history since the 1800s. It was nothing less than historic. Enjoy!
