Denne and Etta

Dené (she/they) has raised 7-year old Etta (she/her) with honesty about her own queerness and intentionality around Etta’s experience with gender and sexuality.

“The more I come to terms with my experience as a queer person and in the communities that I care about, the more I let go of stuff, the more I engage, the more it’s just gonna be natural to her...the more normalized it will be for her...Trying to engage that process [of growing].”

“These boxes....that girls are put in via this policing, I basically every day just take her out of the box. Every day I try to undo"
