A Girlhood: Letter to My Transgender Daughter

by Carolyn Hays Author

In Letter to My Transgender Daughter, Amy Ellis Nutt tells the story of her family's journey after their daughter, Nicole, came out as transgender. While coming out can be difficult anywhere, the Hays family lived in the Bible Belt. Facing a complaint from the Department of Children and Families about their parenting., they moved away but did not escape either prejudice or discrimination. In her letter, Nutt writes about her love for her daughter and her commitment to fighting for her rights. She also writes about the challenges that transgender people face and the need for acceptance and understanding.
