He’s a comedian. He’s appeared on the British and American improvisation show Whose Line is it Anyway? You might know him from The Drew Carey Show. And now, Colin Mochrie, has spoken out about his transgender daughter in the most beautiful way.
He took to Twitter to ask the question: If my 90-year-old mother-in-law, and my 87-year-old mother can love and accept my transgender daughter, I wonder why some people who are younger cannot?
My 90-yr-old mother-in-law and 87-yr-old mother love and acceptance of our trans daughter warms me. Wonder why some who are younger can’t.
