Tina Healy is a transgender woman who didn't come out until about three-and-half years ago, at which point her mother was already beginning to show signs of dementia. Healy has a daughter of her own, who recently wrote a book for kids about being transgender, so the family was featured on The Australian Broadcasting Company, where Healy shared this very sweet anecdote about having to repeatedly explain to her own mom why Tina is now openly her daughter:
