You might think being a trans parent is very different from parenting as a cis person but that’s just a bold assumption. Sure, there might be some issues to get out of the way, but after that small extra step being a trans parent is, to use Aubree Calvin’s words: Uneventful. Trips to the playground, the much needed night off, Bree has been through it all with as much love as any other Maddy would.
After moving around a lot as a child Aubree settled in Texas. Living in the United State’s conservative south may come with some political downsides for trans and otherwise queer folks, it also is part of a large cultural identity. The South is home to a lot of unique perspectives and stories you can’t find in the mayor cities on either U.S. coast so Aubree is eager to share them.
We totally failed to mention this on the pod, but I got in touch with Aubree through our mutual friend Leigh of History is Gay fame. I got the honour of co-hosting an episode of this wonderfully nerdy podcast, like Aubree has done before me. Check the links below to find out all about this and all her other work.
