    How To Give Birth To Yourself

    – [Brian] I feel like I’ve died so many times. Growing up, I was sent to Catholic schools. The kind where they tell you that masturbation is a sin, and the girls wear short pink skirts. Homosexuality? Forget about it. Gays go to hell and masculinity was my armor. Everything feels safer when you check the boxes of what people expect you to be. So I never even admitted to myself that I liked boys. In high school, I told my friends that I was straight, and tried to play the part of the masculine teenager.

    “If all men got pregnant, it’d be taken more seriously” – behind the scenes of Seahorse

    This is a film about me having a baby. But what I feel like I’m going through isn’t me having a baby or pregnancy, it’s like a much more fundamental, total loss of myself. So I’m Freddy McConnell and Seahorse is a film about how I became a dad and how as a trans man I chose pregnancy and birth in order to do that. Male seahorses give birth and carry their babies. Trans dads who give birth call themselves seahorse dads. It’s a word that we use for ourselves so it felt like a sort of continuation of the idea that this film was told with my consent and…

BECAUSE I DON’T WANT THIS TO BE AN ONGOING ISSUE THAT I HAVE WITH THE COMMUNITY IN WHICH YOU ARE SUCH A GREAT SPOKESMAN AND ADVOCATE.

    Pregnant Dad: Giving Birth As A Transgender Man | Sex Map of Britain

    I’m a transgender man currently under the care of a gender identity clinic. Please refer to me as he, and him, and make an effort to use gender-neutral terms regarding pregnancy and birth, ie, pregnant people rather than pregnant women. I will be father to my child as will my husband, Alex, so please do not refer to either of us as a mother, or mum. This is extremely important for my mental and emotional wellbeing. Like the weirdest pregnancy announcement ever known to man. Gender of the day. Suck on this, Beyonce. All my memories of my childhood are here. This is the best part of the woods, because…
