Any regular reader of Raising My Rainbow is familiar with the story of CJ, his mom and their family, though finally you can put a face to the blog. Lori Duron has always kept her son’s identity secret, and until she wrote a book, her identity as well. This morning, however, she and husband Matt went on the Today show to discuss her new book and what it’s like raising their gender-creative son. And we actually get a chance to hear from CJ himself.
“There was a Barbie in my mom’s closet. I went in her closet, and I found it. And then I started to like girls’ stuff,” CJ explained, adding, “Some people can be different, some people don’t have to.”
