WOW! I'm sorry they lost a daughter!

Oct 29, 2019
"The story of one family’s evolving journey from crisis to empowerment while raising a transgender child. Grief, acceptance, transition, and a new found mission to make this world a more accepting place for all of our children. Nicole Bruno, the mother of a transgender child, discusses the importance of supporting these young trailblazers who are brave enough to challenge social construct and what is considered the “social norm.”

Nicole Bruno was born and raised in Farmingdale, NY. She is life long “Daler” who attended the same elementary school that her two children are currently attending and is proud to continue the Daler tradition. After seeking professional guidance from gender specialists and therapists when their 4 year old was experiencing significant gender dysphoria, the Nicole and her husband spent the next 2 years seeking guidance and support from medical professionals who specialized in gender studies/research and advocacy. Their research led to a discovery of the horrific statistics for transgender youth, due to oppression and discrimination, which led them to the decision as a family to affirm their child’s identity. Nicole has been a fearless parent advocate in her children’s school, community, local sports, and local advocacy outlets on Long Island ever since.
