Trans Bed-Stuy Man Shares His Experience of Family Acceptance


Brit Fryer and his mom are teaming up to share their story about navigating Brit’s gender identity together, with acceptance and understanding.

The heartwarming story of a Bed-Stuy man’s journey navigating his gender identity with the support of his mom is part of a new documentary series that centers on Black voices.

When Brit Fryer — who is trans — first started trying to work out the language around his gender identity, he called his mom, Sharon Kidd Fryer.

“I would just call my mom a lot. And, just through talking to her about the reasons why I was feeling low or sad I kind of found the thing that was bothering me, which was I wasn’t addressing this thing with my gender that was kind of right there,” he said .
