Joanne Lee didn’t know how to react when her second child, Skylar, came out as transgender and found that she was unable to fully understand and accept his LGBTQ identity. Her world forever changed when Skylar took his life on September 28, 2015 at 16 years-old. With tears falling down her face, Joanne shares the impact Skylar had on his community and her desire to continue on his legacy by helping other transgender children find love and acceptance.
