Daniel Harrott, 41, and fiancée Shirley Austin, 62, captured the national limelight on Friday after the Drudge Report linked to their unique story out of the Grand Canyon State: Not only are Daniel and Shirley transgender, so are their kids. “The whole family is in transition,” Ms. Austin told a local NPR member station on Monday for a piece titled “Growing up Transgender.” Siblings Mason, 11, and Joshua, 13, also came out as transgender for the station’s story. “It feels like you’re getting to live for the first time,” Mr. Harrott said for the Queen Creek interview. “And my children are getting to be who they’ve always wanted to be.” Mr. Harrott told reporter Stina Sieg that the internal family dynamics are “very traditional,” despite what strangers might think.
