US mom celebrates after child reveals self to be transgender
Washington, Feb 8: Being transgender is not a socially assuring news but there are exceptions on this planet that still give us hope. A mother of a 20-year-old recently decided to arrange for a celebration after the former told her that he is a transgender.
Although Adrian Brown's age was a far too high for the traditional gender-reveal party, yet the family decided to go for it and once it was celebrated, the photoshoot of the event has gone viral on social media.
According to an NBC News report, Adrian always had a disliking for being like the other girls. He did not like to wear women's dresses or go shopping like them.
After doing some research, Adrian understood that he was a transgender and revealed the same to his mother Heather Lundberg Green and younger brother last year in September.
"The decision to come out was really scary. The hardest part was coming out to myself, accepting myself and loving myself for who I am," Brown was quoted as saying by NBC News.
His family did not turn Adrian away but came out with full support. Lundberg, a boutique owner/designer, said their family has always been very inclusive that believed in universal equality, the report added. She even called the revelation of Adrian's identity as a transgender as a "huge milestone" in his life.
The family then came up with a well-thought out photo shoot that saw Lundberg sporting a fake baby bump and Brown wrapped in a blanket with "It's a Boy" written on it in blue letters.
The proud mother wanted to let everybody know her son's transition and she did it in style.
Her Facebook post over the same received a huge response (16,000 shares) with people lauding the family for its support for Adrian.
