A Holiday Wish

"I dream about the day when families with transgender children will be able to have classic Thanksgiving celebrations, gathering at the family homestead, kids playing in the basement, a football game on TV in the living room and amazing smells wafting throughout Grandma and Grandpa's big old house. Unfortunately, many families like ours celebrate alone or with a few close friends because they are not considered part of the extended family anymore, or it is just too awkward trying to "keep it normal" for the children."

So begins Wayne Maines' "Transgender Family Thanksgiving Celebrations".  I won't comment on it.  Instead, I'll direct you to the essay, which is worth every second (about 300 or so) you'll spend reading it.
