[Video] “A Mother’s Promise: You Can Be Yourself” – Gender Spectrum Blog

A New York Times video series recently featured a short animation with Laurin Mayeno, a Bay Area parent, author and founder of Out Proud Families. Laurin previously joined with Gender Spectrum to record a “Story Time” reading of her children’s book, One of a Kind Like Me/Único Como Yo. Laurin’s “Story Time” videos are available for viewing in English and Spanish.

The Times video tells Laurin’s moving story of her family and her Gender-expansive child, don’t miss it!
