It’s Christmas eve, and I just posted my latest audio podcast episode. This podcast is my holiday gift to you, because I think it is wonderful. I can’t take any credit for it being wonderful. I really can’t.
It’s wonderful because it’s the sound of a happy child explaining how she’s made her little life work as a transgender kid, in defiance of the odds and her own mother’s doubts and resistance, and all at the tender and magnificent age of six.
I asked M. last week if I could interview her. I expected her to turn me down, or for her to lose interest after one or two questions. But something new and wonderful happened, and she warmed to the microphone, leaned back into the couch pillows, and waxed on, at length, about the trials and triumphs of her little life so far.
God, I’m proud of her. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
I wish you the happiest of holidays.
