Parenting Transgender Kids - The Bigger Picture

Gloriously Unready

03-05-2024 • 1 hr 5 mins

Sometimes as a parent or ally of a transgender person you can end up doing more harm than good when it comes to speaking out because you are running the risk of outing that person.

And that’s why the guest in this episode is keeping their identity private, to protect the privacy and safety of her transgender child.

But that doesn’t stop the conversation covering topics from the importance of grassroots activism and personal connections, what it means to be an ally, the struggles parents face when it comes to medical options for their children and having to adjust your dreams for your children’s future.

Josephine and her guest also discuss how their own societal prejudices were an issue when their children first came out, but through reaching out to the community and learning they are overcoming this.

Please Note:

Everybody mentioned in this podcast series has agreed for their story to be told.

We are keeping the names of Josephine's children private.
