Famous actor and filmmaker gave an interview to Vanity Fair in which he expressed his love to his son Stephen who is transgender. The proud father said that Stephen is his hero, as well as his other children (the actor is a father of 4!). Stephen is now 24 years old, he is making a successful career in writing an poetry. He is also an activist of transgender community, leading a website devoted to the life of transgender people, the issues of sexuality and gender identity.
“I identify as a trans man, a faggy queen, a homosexual, a queer, a nerd fighter, a writer, an artist and a guy who needs a haircut,” Stephen said, :“It’s rare that my gender is misread [now that I’ve transitioned] based on my fem presentation, which I really appreciate. And that’s totally a privilege, being on hormones and being perceived, being read that way – as male, even though I’m presenting in a fem way. It’s totally a privilege.It’s nice to finally have my identity be legible to people.”
