Cecilia Nasmith reported on the recent publication of Caught in Transition in this article. I was happy to sit down with her to help spread my understanding of life for couples where one person transitions. The local town has a population for about 16,000, so this kind of story is very new. The locality is recognized for its emphasis on well-being and feeling good, and giving this interview was a chance to help to nurture that open mindedness.
The article was well received. At first I was a little hesitant to become known in the local area. There has only been positive feedback, both for myself and Sheelagh. It’s so good to have the relief of being able to let go of the anxiety of being rejected en masse by the geographic community. And very affirming to be exposed to the kindness and appreciation of people in my area.
