I consider myself really blessed to have such a strong queer family. Recently, I got a chance to interview one of my moms about being a lesbian mom of a trans daughter for the public radio program Story Corps. A 4 minute version aired locally, but you can listen to it or the entire 50 minute interview from my mom's website. If you've got the time, it's quite interesting.
PFLAGers have long known that protective parents can be a powerful force advocating for their LGBT children. My parents weren't 100% on board from day one, and were initially concerned that my being trans would be seen as a failure of lesbian parenting. But once they played through the usually negative reactions their experience fighting for LGB rights translated perfectly into their new work as trans advocates. My mom who works at the local hospital has found herself in charge of crafting a new policy for the treatment of trans patients after she complained about the current treatment trans patients face. My other mom, who is a writer wrote an article for the local paper giving her take on the backlash to the mixed race photo exhibit I took part in.
This is my vision of a what a queer family can look like.
