On a whim Heather Green planted the photo shoot, an event mostly for expectant mothers – for the birthday of her son Adrian Brown on January 29th.
"There was no rule book for what a mother should do when their child comes to them and says:" This is my truth, "Green told WAVE. "This was just unknown territory, and however much I wanted to support him, I also wanted him to know that it was not just acceptance, or that I would endure it – I would celebrate it."
Green is depicted with a false baby hump. Brown shows another image in canvases with the words "It's a boy", a gigantic teddy bear is in the neighborhood. He is surrounded by balloons by others.
In September, Brown, formerly known as Hannah, came to his mother and brother, Lucas Brown, reported Yahoo News.
"The decision to get out was really scary," Adrian Brown told WAVE. "The hardest part came to me, accept myself and love myself for who I am."
Brown had the full support of his family and discovered that the post has served as an inspiration to others.
"I thought this was a kind of struggle I had to do alone, it's really heart-warming to see that there are so many people who share the same story as me and who support such a complete stranger, and it gives me a lot of hope," Brown to WAVE. "I know that many people do not have the same level of support as I do, but knowing that I have a support system like them, it's amazing that you know it."
