Growing up, I couldn’t imagine having parents like Ludovic’s. I believe puberty and trying to figure out who you are is hard enough without everyone judging your every move. I will forever be grateful to my parents for helping me grow up and mature into the person I am today. They knew about my sexuality before I told them. And yet, they still accepted me without question. They continued to let me participate in sports, keep my hair short, and dress in boys clothes. I think most parents, especially those in Utah, would have done anything to stop me. So when it came time to actually “come out” to my parents, I knew I was in good hands. It was nerve-wracking of course, but I knew I would still be loved, appreciated, and understood. I think that’s what every parent needs to provide their children with: security. Children shouldn’t have to worry about disappointing their parents with things they’re born with.
