Ezra Furman came out on Wednesday as a transgender woman and has been a mother for over two years.
“About being a trans woman: For my own reasons I have been hesitant to use these words, especially the ‘woman’ word,” she wrote on Instagram. “I have often described myself as non-binary, which maybe is still true (I’m just gonna sit with that question for the moment). But I’ve come to terms with the fact that I am a woman, and yes for me it’s complex, but it’s complex to be any sort of woman. I am very proud to be a trans woman and to have come to know it and be able to say it. This has not been an easy journey.”
