“[Galen] didn’t say anything about being trans, or wanting to see a therapist, or wanting to make changes in ways that felt really practical. [So] I just sort of thought of it as, ‘Oh, you know, she wishes things were different, but she’s okay that they aren’t, and she found a little niche for herself in the world,’” Laura added.
