I always knew I was queer in my sexual orientation, but it wasn’t until this year when I attended Trans Pride in LA with my 26 year old trans daughter that I landed in my own queer identity. In that diverse and inclusive space I felt at home, and included for the first time since being born.
I also honor and embrace the woman that I’ve had the privilege to be – loving people of all genders and the journey of giving birth to and raising a child. I fully and joyfully identify as their MOM. I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything. And now to be included in her transition, I know that everything is going to be ok! We are encouraging one another, birthing each other, traveling together on our separate paths.
I stepped into this project because I want to share that “motherhood” can be self-defined, revolutionary, not reducing or restrictive. I am a creative, a sensitive, a confronter of gender “norms” and a full hearted celebrant of things in all their expressions. And my wish is that I may be able to touch other’s lives with my story.
