Author comes out as transgender man after his wife came out as trans woman, who also have a trans daughter, and now live in a four-way open relationship with their trans lovers
An author has come out as a transgender man after his husband transitioned from male to female – and the couple now live in a four-way relationship with their trans lovers.
Rowan Jette Knox, formerly known as Amanda Jette Knox, announced on his social media in August that he was ‘re-introducing’ himself as a trans man.
The Toronto-based writer and activist, who started taking testosterone earlier this week, follows in the footsteps of his husband-turned-wife and son-turned-daughter.
Knox’s wife Zoe was previously known as Mark but came out as transgender in July 2015, after 19 years of marriage.
The pair’s daughter Alexis revealed that she was transgender in early 2014.
Rowan says he too was born in the wrong body, but that it took a long time to come to terms with his true gender.
Rowan and Zoe live with their transgender partners Dani and Dame in the same Toronto house. Dani and Dame are themselves a couple.
Rowan describes the unusual relationship as a ‘polycule.’ He previously shared his delight at realizing he was non-binary before coming out as transgender and told PinkNews: ‘Trans joy is infectious’.
In a post to his Instagram account, the writer said: ‘It is with joy, relief, and a fair amount of anxiety that I am re-introducing myself to you as Rowan Jette Knox.
‘I am a trans man, am medically transitioning, and will be exclusively using he/him pronouns going forward.
‘I’ve known this is who I am for a long time now, but I had to work up the courage to say it out loud.’
‘It took months of introspection therapy, long chats with loved ones, plenty of tears, and pushing through a lot of fear and denial to get here.’
In an article published late last month, Knox wrote that he and Zoe had started a polyamorous relationship with another transgender couple named Dani and Dame.
