“But I’ve come to terms with the fact that I am a woman, and yes for me it’s complex, but it’s complex to be any sort of woman,” she mentioned. Furman had beforehand recognized as non-binary, and had mentioned she had “been hesitant to use … the ‘woman’ word.”
She instructed followers: “I have not yet mentioned in public that I’m a parent because I have been afraid of being judged and grilled about it as if it’s anyone’s business other than mine and my family’s.”
But she mentioned she was revealing the information to remind different folks questioning their gender identification that parenthood is potential as a trans particular person.
“One problem with being trans is that we have so few visions of what it can look like to have an adult life, to grow up and be happy and not die young,” she wrote. “When our baby was born I had approximately zero examples that I had seen of trans women raising children.”
“I’m a trans woman and a mom. This is possible. I never dreamed it was possible to be happy and self-realized and trans and uncloseted, and also become a parent. But it is and I am doing it,” she mentioned.
Furman’s most up-to-date album, “Twelve Nudes,” was launched in 2019.
