NO. OF KIDS: 2.
They live with him.
“In my late twenties, I had another child, but I was still
even more masculine just in my natural butch persona, and I started
passing (as a man). I mean, I’ve always been called "sir,"
never "ma’am," and then I just started passing
on the job. I think it wasn’t even a conscious decision
to pass...By the time I was 31 or 32, I found out about transitioning
because a good friend of mine was an FTM...I face discrimination
every day. I can get threatened with being kicked out of my job.
If they decide they just don’t want to deal with the repercussions
of having a transsexual on the worksite, then I can lose my job.
I can lose my kids any minute.”
