While she had not had the courage, the young woman confided in the columns of People: “It was scary – just the simple fact of telling them something about me that they did not know. was intimidating, but I wasn’t worried. They had accepted me so much all my life. ” Finally, Ruby preferred to announce it to her mother by text message. “I called her immediately. Needless to say there were tears,” said the actress, adding, “It’s speaking a new language. It’s learning new terminology and new ones. words. I’m new to it. I’m not someone who claims to know a lot about it. And I’m going to make mistakes. I would like to try to avoid making big ones. “

Talking about his daughter’s journey, Jamie Lee Curtis explained: “When Ruby pronounced her dead name (former first name of a transgender person, editor’s note), it was the most difficult thing. Just the regularity of the word. The name that you gave to a child. That you said all their life. And so, of course, at first it was the challenge. Then the pronoun. My husband and I still make mistakes every now and then. ” While Ruby assured that she didn’t blame them, the actress said: “I think it’s kind of scalable and a very important step in our house (…) I’m learning a lot from Ruby . ” Openly, the star revealed, “I knew Ruby had a boyfriend. I knew Ruby had used the word bi. But gender identity and sexual orientation – those are two separate things. knew Ruby played female avatars in video games. But when you ask, ‘Did you have any idea that Ruby was trans?’ I would say no. But when I replayed Ruby’s life, I was like, ‘Hmm, that, that, those, hmm.’ “
