More transgender kids

More transgender kids

It seems that there are more transgender kids than ever before. I’ve been thinking about that a lot and wondering about it. I have a Facebook group for parents of LGBTQ kids and it seems more and more parents who request to join have a transgender or gender variant...

A Wonderful Grandmother

A Wonderful Grandmother

I’ve been thinking a lot about my mom in the last few days. The anniversary of her death approaches next month and while our relationship was never what I would have wanted from a mother, I do miss her. She had a wonderful smile and a contagious laugh. She was a...

Why I still care about marriage equality

Why I still care about marriage equality

Anyone who has known me for a long time, knows that I’ve been passionate about marriage equality for a long time. When my younger son got married in 2000, it struck me how unfair it was that he could marry so easily because he was marrying a woman and my older son,...

Pink-an example of parenting

I love Pink. I love her music, I love her honesty, I love her rawness. And she is an awesome mom, an example of parenting at its best. She has a gender non-conforming daughter. I guess you can call her that. She likes to dress in boys clothes, suit and tie. And she...

Gender Spectrum

Gender Spectrum

This weekend I will be attending my 4th Gender Spectrum Conference. I’m coming this year in a very different place than I was 4 years ago. I attended my first Gender Spectrum conference about as uninformed as one can be! I didn’t even know there was a spectrum when it...
