I'm going to Italy next week to visit my 88 year old nan. I'm not sure if my mum will allow me to come out then but if not I will be soon. I was wondering how I'd go about coming out to her. She is a quite(although not extremely) devout Catholic, and I highly doubt she will have heard of trans, or even gay people, which in a way could work to my advantage as she won't be prejudiced. She is very much holds on to old fashioned beliefs, having grown up in a time where she was caned for being left-handed, and she still believes men are more competent than women etc. I was wondering how I could explain to her that I am trans and somehow get her to understand what that is and accept it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read this!
