Great post. I’m also biracial (black/white Jewish also) and agender, and have struggled with similar questions of identity and where I fit into the world. I’m older (45) and did not have the Internet to turn to in my youth to explore these issues with others; if I had, I might have realized that I was trans a lot sooner. I think it’s really important for parents to be supportive and allow their children to express themselves in whatever ways they find comfortable, while being honest (at an age-appropriate time) about the challenges they will face for being people of color and/or gender-variant.
