Modern family: Mom, dad, 11-year-old son and daughter, 13, ALL identify as transgender
An entire family of four - man, woman, son and daughter - has come out as transgender in Queen Creek, Arizona.
Daniel Harrott, 41, the biological parent of two trans children, was assigned female gender at birth and is a transgender man.
His son and daughter also say they were assigned the wrong gender at birth, and he has met a transgender woman, Shirley Austin, 62, who was assigned male gender at birth. Harrott and Austin are now engaged.
'It feels like you're getting to live for the first time,' Harrott said. 'And my children are getting to be who they've always wanted to be.'
Chaz Bono, who was assigned female at birth and is a transgender man, explains his being born with female reproductive organs as being 'a birth defect, like a cleft palate,' according to Bustle.
'There's a gender in your brain and a gender in your body. For 99 percent of people, those things are in alignment. For transgender people, they're mismatched,' he said.
Harrott's son, 11-year-old Mason, was assigned female gender at birth and is a transgender boy. He has dark brown hair, shaved up on the sides that falls slight over his eyes if he's not careful to keep it swept back.
Harrott's daughter, Joshua, age 13, was assigned male gender at birth and is a transgender girl. She has sandy-brown hair that falls just to her shoulders as she sits in her wheelchair.
'I think I was only, like 6 or 7,' Joshua said, of when she knew she was trans.
Harrott told KJZZ that he thinks trans people have been part of his family for 100 years.
His grandmother's sister, which would be his great aunt, was called a 'cross-dresser,' he said. Harrott said that bothered his grandmother, so she was very strict with his mother, and made sure she dressed feminine at all times.
