During an interview with The Conversation on the BBC World Service

Martha Kaufman, 65, who created the show with David Crane, spoke of her regret over

the representation of Charles Bing, Chandler Bing's transgender parent, played by Kathleen Turner. 

Kaufman said: "We kept calling her [Chandler's transgender parents] Chandler's father, even though Chandler's father was trans.

"I don't understand the pronoun yet. So we didn't mention that character as her. It was a mistake."

Chandler, played by Matthew Perry, was one of the main characters of the show along with Rachel Green

Monica Geller, Ross Geller, Phoebe Buffet and Joy Tribia.

Kaufman, who is also the creator of the Netflix hit Grace & Frankie

said he now strives to create inclusive and diverse workplaces.
