A queer couple shares their journey to forming a family

storycorps-ct-1400x1400.png

Spouses Beck and Annie Fineman talk about the challenges they face as a queer family and how they’ve embraced parenthood. “I’m really grateful to have you as a co-parent,” Beck tells Annie as he describes how lucky their children are to have her as their mom.

“The prospect of raising a boy as a transgender man who did not have a traditional boyhood was really daunting.” – Beck Fineman

“It’s always hard when we are in a queer space, and we have to make sure people know we’re not just allies. We’re part of the community here too.” – Annie Fineman
