Sharing that the motivation behind the family’s decision to go public was to help other families who were also dealing with a transition, Kim discussed the range of reactions Bruce initially received. She also explained why it felt like a loss before her sisters eventually came around to acceptance.
“Everyone in the family has such a different emotion. We all get back to acceptance and everyone supports him, but it’s okay to have every emotion. There is this sense of death that people around feel. And he understands that, but he’s not going anywhere.”
