sometimes happy endings are possible

Coeur de Pirate (real name Beatrice Martin) is a Quebec-based chanteuse who recently came out as a queer woman. She admitted that she was compelled to come out by the recent mass shooting in the Orlando gay club where more than 30 people were killed.

Recently she has been seen frequenting Laura Jane Grace of the group Against Me. If you recall Laura is a transgender woman who came out a few years ago and ultimately was divorced from her wife due to her decision to transition. This is not so unexpected a development for transgender people of course.

But what is nice to see is that a transgender woman is able to find someone to love them for who they are. So many of these stories don’t end up well and if this one works it could be a happy ending for two people who have decided to come out to the world and be their authentic selves.
