Being "Dad" and a Transgender Woman - Joanne's story

Gloriously Unready

30-06-2023 • 44 mins

Around six years ago Joanne realised she needed to hit the stop button on everything in her life, except her family.

She had a very stereotypical male business and was married with two grown up children who had always known her as dad. But she knew that all had to change if she was going to be the real her.

And as she explains becoming Joanne hasn't always been the easiest journey - especially coming out in your late 40s and being an older transgender woman. But she is still married to her wife and her children are still part of her life.

Has a young person in your life just come out as transgender or non-binary? Do you feel confused and have a lot of questions?

Perhaps you’re feeling frightened for them? Or maybe you’re feeling upset?
