8:08PM (EST) – GLORIA PARKER is the AUTHOR of "MEETING ROBYN"

A STORY OF HOW TO LOVE A TRANSGENDER CHILD.

Meeting Robyn This biographical account, told in an unusual voice, is a powerful account of raising a transgendered child. The book takes the reader on a roller coaster ride around the country as the unfolding story explores the unconventional lifestyle of Gloria and her struggles to accept her only child's confusion with his sexual identity. She suspects the gender confusion is the cause of his life-long epilepsy. She also suspects it is why he is bullied at school and why, in later years, they become estranged. But, love and faith win out…opening them up to love and forgiveness, acceptance and understanding between a mother and her only child. She'll share her roller coaster ride of emotions with the audience as she tells the story of her and Robin's struggles with his sexual identity. You'll also learn what every parent should know about handling bullies and assaults during a child's formative years. Gloria Parker has worked as an actress, screenwriter, and playwright. She is the author of "Meeting Robyn", an autobiographical account of raising her transgendered son.

She knew he was different as a child; She knew he was different as a teen; in fact, the woman you are about to meet says she knew her son was born in the wrong body long before he was able to admit it. Despite this knowledge, she confesses that it was a long, hard road to acceptance of her son's alternative lifestyle and his decision to stop living as Robert and move into a life s Robyn.
