We are mothers, fathers, offspring, siblings, spouses, partners and friends. We come from different ethnic, cultural, socio-economic, religious and educational backgrounds. We are young, we are middle-aged, and we are in our retirement years.
Despite our differences, we all have one thing in common: We care about someone who has told us that they are not the gender we thought they were.
This person might be a young child, adult child, parent, sibling, spouse or life partner. They may tell us they were born in the wrong body, or that they simply feel more comfortable living as the opposite gender. They may tell us that they don't identify with being either male or female. They may have recently discovered this about themselves, or they may have carried this secret for a lifetime. Whatever their story, we are finding out that what we thought, and what we saw, wasn’t right for them.
Many of us struggle with fear, confusion, shame and anger about the changes that are thrust upon us. But underneath the array of emotions, we are driven by a desire to stay connected to the person that we love.
It's because of this that we come together, to share experience, knowledge and courage, and to support each other as we learn to accept, and hopefully embrace, the Shift that is Happening around us.
