WATCH: Meet “Raising My Rainbow” Mom And Son On The “Today” Show

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.”
