Episode 073: If You Can’t Trust the Law with Your Transgender Life, Who Can You Trust? – Julian Kelly


I want you to imagine the following scenario. You’re happily married. You really love your spouse. You do beautiful work in advocacy for marriage equality and your husband is chef. Between the two of you, you have three beautiful children that also share time with your husband’s ex-spouse. However, there’s a story hiding in the closet. A story that is putting your children, and their well-being, at risk. It stems from a divorce that’s gone wrong and going awry each and every moment that ticks by, but there’s something else hidden in this story that needs to come out of the closet and out of the closet fast. Here to share her coming out story, one that is unfolding right now as we’re on the air, is Julian Kelly. We talk about how court orders don’t always mean you get what’s needed to be a good parent.
