The parents of four have loudly supported their daughter Zaya coming out as trans. Union spoke to Buzzfeed, saying, “It’s important for us to live and love out loud,” she said. “We didn’t exactly understand why [supporting Zaya’s trans identity] was a thing because it’s like, we love all our kids out loud. But it is a thing, and a lot of people do need an example. [People] do need that [kind of] representation.”    


Cynthia Nixon celebrates Seph.


Cynthia Nixon posted to Instagram in 2018 about her eldest kid’s college graduation, writing, “I’m so proud of my son Samuel Joseph Mozes (called Seph) who graduated college this month.

Back in 2019, Jaah Kelly opened up to Paper Magazine about gender and sexuality. His mother, Drea Kelly, praised her trans son, telling VH1, “All I can say about Jay is he makes it so easy to be a proud mom. For parents, we need to realize [that our kids] have their own journey. Parents get it wrong when they don’t support their children. They have to go out and fight every day and face this world. The first battle should not be at home. I think that a lot of children in the LGBT community don’t succeed because the one thing they need the most is [a] foundation. I just tell Jay all the time, baby, you won the war. You’re gonna have a lot of battles, but you won the war. Mama accepts and loves you for who you are. Your family does.”

Busy mentioned on her podcast, Busy Phillips Is Doing Her Best, that she got permission from Birdie before speaking about it publicly, telling listeners, “Bird was like, ‘I don’t give a fuck.

When her son, Noah, was spotted in a dress at the age of 5, Fox spoke out about supporting them as they are, saying, “When I became pregnant with Noah, I could feel, through my mother’s intuition I suppose, that he was not subscribing to gender stereotypes, so I decided to provide an environment for him early on that would allow him to discover how he wanted to express himself,” she said.

Speaking with Reuters Magazine, Jolie spoke about her child’s clothing choices, saying, ” “I think she (Shiloh) is fascinating, the choices she is making, and I would never be the kind of parent to force somebody to be something they are not. I think that is just bad parenting.”
