Annette Bening shared her proud mom moment. In a recent interview with the Hollywood Reporter, the actress shared how her transgender son Stephen inspired and influenced her. Moreover, she shared her support for the LGBTQ+ community. 

Annette Bening said the situation of the LGBTQ+ community only going to get worse

The actress said to the outlet, “I have a trans son, and he is such an inspiration to me. Certainly, what’s happening in the political world with trans people is so concerning and so dire. It’s only going to get worse as we go into the election cycle.”

Moreover, Bening said her support of the community, “For me, the real transition has happened as the right-wing in the country has become more and more mobilized on misinforming people about the LGBTQ+ community. They have been vilifying our community and creating problems that do not exist and creating and sowing hate and fear as a way of rallying their base.”

Moreover, she found it”heartbreaking” to see the “coldness and lack of compassion that so many people have.”

“They are trying to stir up all this fear in people about trans kids and parents, and they are trying to legislate that,” the actress said. “This should not be scary to anybody else. This is a private, legitimate, complex, deep, spiritual, physical, psychological experience that must be respected and honoured.”

“To love your child so much is the greatest way to learn about what trans people are all about,” Bening said of her trans son. “I get to say this because I’m the mother: My son is incredibly brilliant…   He’s someone I do admire, and I’ve learned a lot from when he first came out.”

However, she admitted to being “very ignorant about what that meant, to be a trans kid,” when she first knew. 

“I, like every other parent, want to protect my kids and make sure they’re OK, and I had a lot of learning to do,” she said. “I didn’t always know what to do, and I didn’t always make the right choices because of my own ignorance, but we got through it.”
