Paria Hassouri, in conversation with “Tembi Locke, discusses Found in Transition: A Mother’s Evolution During Her Child’s Gender Change”
September 10 @ 6:00 pmFree
On Thanksgiving morning, Paria Hassouri finds herself furiously praying and negotiating with the universe as she irons a dress her fourteen-year-old, designated male at birth, has secretly purchased and wants to wear to dinner with the extended family. In this wonderfully frank, loving, and practical account of parenting a transgender teen, Paria chronicles what amounts to a dual transition: as her child transitions from male to female, she navigates through anger, denial, and grief to eventually arrive at acceptance.
