Press reviews for: My Trans Parent

Lara Lillibridge, author of Girlish: Growing Up in a Lesbian Home

Heather Bryant is the wiser older sister that children of all ages need when their parent transitions. Filled with practical advice and personal stories, My Trans Parent reassures, nurtures, and inspires, providing space and permission to process any and all feelings you may experience.

Sadie Epstein-Fine, editor/author of Spawning Generations: Rants and Reflections on Growing Up with LGBTQ+ Parents

Growing up with queer moms I longed for a 'how to' book like this. Instead of asking and answering the basic questions all queerspawn have been asked about bullying, sexual/gender identity, and the general 'did you turn out okay?,' Heather Bryant delves into the messy feelings, complicated joys and unanswerable questions that only someone raised by a trans parent can access.
