A transgender couple have revealed they are expecting their first baby in a month’s time.

Scott Moore - thought to be only the second ‘pregnant man’ to go public - is due to give birth to a boy in February, with husband Thomas by his side.

Scott, 30, who is legally married to Thomas because he still has a female birth certificate, says he is eagerly looking forward to giving birth.
They have decided to call the child ‘Miles’.

‘We know some people will criticise us but we are blissfully happy and not ashamed,’ Scott said.
The couple, from California, already have two children - Gregg, 12, and Logan, 10 - who Thomas had with a previous female partner.

Caster Semenya has been told that she can keep the gold medal she won at the World Championships. No word yet on whether she will be allowed to continue competing in women's events, but it's good to hear that she's not being stripped of her medal at least.

In vaguely related news, tomorrow is International Transgender Day of Remembrance. The Transgender Day of Remembrance is now in its eleventh year, and it’s a day to remember those who have been killed as a result of anti-transgender hatred or prejudice.

I'll be lighting candles.
