Phoenix, 7, non-binary, transgender girl, California. Phoenix and her mom...excerpt
M-Which bathroom are you going to at school? P-I listen to the door and I find out if there is anybody in there, and if there is I don’t go in.
If there is some people in the boy’s and somebody in the girls I hide. And if there is nobody in the girls I will go in.
M-Does that make you sad. P-Yes.
M-What if someone thinks you are a boy how does that make you feel?
P-Sad…Because I’m not a boy. I’m a girl !!!!! And nobody has to mean to me about that.
...I'm gonna be cisgender when I’m older. I will be a girl. I will get the medicine and I will be older and and I will be a girl and I won’t have a “peepee”.
M-Why do your body parts make you a girl? If you are a girl you're a girl now….
P-I dont know….When I have my vagaina I can sit down.
M- I want you know that you are beautiful now and that I know you are a girl. I love you #nonbinary #transgender #trans #love #transpride #transkids #fujifilm #transcendingself
