Rori Porter, thank you, for being yourself, and for being a strong voice for the community. Really appreciate the kind words as well. The moments of humor between my (very witty) trans teen and me, and the kind, supportive comments like yours always get me through the hard days. I know I’ll never change the minds of transphobes. I write what I write to let other parents of trans kids know that they aren’t alone, as I once felt many years ago. Thanks so much for the offer of answering questions about what we’re experiencing… I might take you up on that one day! Standing in solidarity with you, always. ❤
