Things that are on my mind or that I’m digging this week…
Inspired by my blog, a documentary filmmaker friend of mine is working on a new feature documentary project that follows the real-life adventures of ordinary families raising fabulously gender creative children. The film will be part of a campaign to increase visibility, awareness and acceptance. She’s looking to connect with parents, families, friends and allies who are at various points of the journey and open to the idea of sharing their stories on-camera. She’s also looking for teens, young adults and adults who were gender nonconforming as children to be interviewed as experts. Interested? Email the amazing Sarah at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Read about “Generation LGBTQIA” as reported by The New York Times this week. “If the gay-rights movement today seems to revolve around same-sex marriage, this generation is seeking something more radical: an upending of gender roles beyond the binary of male/female.”

Have you all been tuning into the web series Neil’s Puppet Dreams? This week’s episode is my favorite so far. Neil Patrick Harris, David Burtka, Joe Manganiello and Willam Belli star. Enough said.

All you moms out there have got to watch I Do Not Like Shaved Legs and Spanx, a Nick Mom parody of I Do Not Like Green Eggs and Ham. It’s the launch of “motherfunny” parodies of popular children’s books geared toward moms who’ve seen it all. I can totally relate to this episode because I happen to not like shaved legs and spanx.
Have a great weekend, C.J.’s Mom
