What would you do if your kid told you they didn’t want to conform to “gender norms”? Personally, I have no idea. I don’t have my pronouns in my email signature, I treat my sons as “boys” and I am not raising my newborn as a “theybie” (it’s a thing, watch the episode). That’s why I called on someone I’ve known since they were a guest on MTV’s The After Show… LGBTQ+ ICON, GIGI GORGEOUS.
In this open, honest and sometimes emotional conversation, Gigi tells me about growing up gender non-conforming, dealing with online trolls, her public transition, and the importance of owning who you are, BITCHES. She helped provide some understanding for me as a parent, and I hope she does the same for you. Oh and she also gave me one hell of a makeover at the end. I think you will all agree… I. LOOK. GORGEOUS. (right? RIGHT?) xo Jessi
