MY SKIN

2013 Mother’s Day Special

Universally Mothers want their kids to grow up happy and healthy.  However for kids who feel they were born the wrong gender, growing up can be a living hell.  Their mind and their body simply do not match and when complicated with puberty, the emerging adult body parts highlight the mental disconnect.

Connor was born with a body he could not love.  As a transman, Connor has had to endure the inner turmoil that all-too-often, drives people with gender dysphoria, to suicide .  For his Mother Lesley, witnessing Connor’s struggle and accepting his transformation has presented its own challenges.  Her faith and her love for Connor is what endured and the result is inspiring.  This is their story.

Lesley is also responsible for organising Bishop Gene Robinson’s Australian Tour and you can find out more here.
