When her child came out as a transgender girl in 2014, Amanda Jetté Knox refocused her writing on LGBTQ+ rights and education. But it was still a challenge when, months later, her spouse came out as a transgender woman. She began to look for examples of marriages that had made it through this transition, and when she found none, she made a new goal: for her family to become the role model she had been searching for. Published in July of 2019, Love Lives Here: A Story of Thriving in a Transgender Family is a candid story of their journey, and an example of what it means to be an ally, lead with love, and learn together.
