Cybele Abbett

Cybele Abbett is a mother, grandmother, artist and humanist. When she first heard Cybele’s story on the Moth Pitchline, Senior Producer Meg Bowles said was, 
"struck by her honesty and willingness to share something that other parents might find difficult to talk about, especially given the current lack of understanding by many about the transgender community."

If you or someone you know is the parent of a transgender child and would like to talk to Cybele, she would be happy to share her experience with you. You can reach out to us at and we will put you in touch with her. Cybele also recommends the book The Transgender Child, A Handbook for Families and Professionals by Stephanie Brill and Rachel Pepper.
