Good Girls’ sweet Coming Out

For some people the prospect of coming out is no longer as grim and scary as it might have been a decade or two ago. But for many it’s still something they dread. One of the best things that can happen to these people is a supportive family. Spoilers for Good Girls ahead.

That’s ehat happened on this week’s episode of NBC’s comedy-drama Good Girls, when Sadie (played by trans actor Isaiah Stannard) came out as a boy to their mum Annie.

“Yay, it’s a boy,” Annie tells Sadie, sharing the news about the birth of their new baby brother. “Mom,” Sadie says in reply. “So am I.”

After Sadie reveals the truth about their gender identity to Annie, Annie crawls in bed with Sadie and gives them a warm, loving hug. “I always wanted a boy,” Annie says, giving Sadie a kiss on the forehead.

It may seem like a short, innocent scene to many, but considering all of the depressing queer representation we’ve seen on TV lately, it’s nice to see positive representation of a trans kid being accepted for who they are—and acted out by an actual trans actor, no less!
