Heather Green’s family made headlines in early 2019 when Heather posted photos from a fun, heart-warming photoshoot celebrating her son Adrian’s gender transition. When Adrian, who studies at the University of Louisville, came out as transgender to Heather and his brother, Lucas (also featured in the photos), Heather knew she wanted to do something special to celebrate and affirm her son. The result is a beautiful photoshoot, which features a play on hyper-traditional “gender reveal” parties, sometimes held with family and friends before children are born. “I wanted to prove to Adrian that there is support for him beyond what he saw,” Heather said.
“When your child comes out as trans, the best thing to do is create a photoshoot to celebrate the fact that he silently and bravely stepped out of the race that he never wanted to be in, found his own lane and proceeded to win,” Heather said on Facebook to mark the occasion of Adrian’s 20th birthday. “You are without a doubt the most fascinating human I know and I will always be your biggest fan! I love you, I honor who you are and I respect your courage to be unapologetically you.”
