Jill Soloway’s father comes out as transgender
Jill Soloway – creator of acclaimed Amazon series “Transparent” – has revealed how her own father came out to her as a transgender.
In a New Yorker post Sunday, Soloway wrote about the unexpected phone call when her dad asked her, “Are you sitting down?” adding, “I’m coming out to you. I’m trans.”
Her dad’s new name was Carrie London. Slowly writes, “There was a nice woman as Nordstrom, he said, who had been helping him pick outfits for years. (Nordstrom? Did I remember him going to Nordstrom?).” But, ‘“Even though my brain was trying to jump out of my skull, I knew to listen and be present, to speak with reassuring words: ‘I hope you know that I love you forever, unconditionally.’”
Soloway has a book out this month from Crown Archetype.
