THE NATURAL MOTHER OF THE CHILD A Memoir of Nonbinary Parenthood

by | Read by Krys Malcolm Belc

Biography & Memoir • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Author and educator Krys Malcolm Belc's ruminations on parenting, relationships, and gender identity are the foundation of this thoughtful production. Belc's writing is both intimate and accessible, with his steady narration directed toward his wife and children. The author candidly discusses his connection with his pregnant body while carrying his son before transitioning as a transgender man and how becoming a parent continues to shape his outlook and relationships. These essays draw out the quotidian activities of Belc's life, taking a child to the pediatrician and weightlifting at the gym, and joins them with discussions on gender role expectations and personal safety. Belc underscores the complexities of contemporary family life in America for LGBTQ+ folks in this must-listen memoir. J.R.T. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2021]
