It’s one thing to have a support network for anyone who is transgender; most people aren’t so lucky. It’s something else entirely when your parent or child goes through the same experiences as you.
Corey Maison knew she wanted to be a girl when she was 11 years old, but was scared of disapproval from her parents. Little did she know that her mother, Erica, was coming to terms with a new gender identity of her own. Four years later, they’ve become a father-daughter duo that faces every step of their unique journey with strength and pride.
Erica, now Eric, gained the courage to confront his lifelong desire to transition from female to male after watching Corey become the young woman she had always felt like inside. Just as Corey feared familial rejection at first, Eric feared what his husband and children would think. After a year of difficult conversations, testosterone therapy, and a double mastectomy, Eric feels better than ever, and has been embraced with open arms by his loving family.
