Person known as a founder of gender reveal parties has a gender-fluid daughter


The ‘inventor’ of gender reveal parties now says she doesn’t agree with them after her 10-year-old daughter started to develop fluid preferences in clothing. In 2008, Jenna Karvunidis found out the biological sex of her baby, 20 weeks into her pregnancy. ‘I just thought it would be fun to make a party out of it,’ she said. The idea of cakes with pink and blue icings was loved by people and pregnancy magazines contacted her to bring this idea to masses. After the birth of her child, Bianca (also known as Bee) and over time, Jenna began to see extreme examples of people taking gender reveal parties too far and this is not what she wanted when it all started with naïve cake icing. Jenna also started learning more about gender and sexuality being on a spectrum, and her daughter Bianca (nicknamed Bee in her family) was not the last person responsible for it. Who cares what gender the baby is?’ she wrote in a Facebook post. ‘I did at the time because we didn’t live in 2019 and didn’t know what we know now – that assigning focus on gender at birth leaves out so much of their potential and talents that have nothing to do with what’s between their legs.’ Jenna then added: ‘PLOT TWIST, the world’s first gender-reveal party baby is a girl who wears suits!’
