Watch as Kimberly Shappley a cisgender, evangelical Christian Republican minister takes the stage with her daughter at Houston Pride. You might be surprised.
When Kimberly was confronted with the possibility of a transgender child she turned to corporal punishment. Fortunately, her daughter’s spirit would not be broken and Kimberly eventually transitioned with her. With Kimberly’s support, Kai started socially transitioning at the age of four.
Kimberly is a sought after speaker as a Christian parent of a transgender child. She is media trained and a subject matter expert who has helped educate elected officials from school boards to state officials.
She is the mother of 7 living in Pearland, Texas.
This year at Pride in Houston, Texas she shared her story. Watch the video here and share this post with the hashtag #TransTuesday.
