Why I’m an LGBTQIA+ ally and a proportion of my profits go to Mermaids UK
My son, Leo is transgender. He came out to us age 11 and after a seriously challenging, heart wrenching and difficult time, we as a family all came out the other end in (more or less) one piece. I couldn’t be prouder of him, the courage he’s shown in being himself and speaking out on behalf of other trans and LGBTQIA+ people. We couldn’t have managed through this difficult time without the support of Mermaids, and families and friends. You can read a bit more about this here if you’re interested.
One of the reasons I decided to go it alone and start consulting was also because Leo and I have started writing a book about our experiences. We’re going to call it ‘Between’. Let me know if you’d like to know more!
What’s to be done?
Except follow the heart
and let the brain catch up.
