Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are the coolest parents in the universe.
In an interview with Oprah, the couple has decided to support eight-year-old Shiloh Joile-Pitt to go by the name of John. In 2010, Angelina opened up to ‘Vanity Fair’ about “John’s” gender identity which they have expressed freely since they were a toddler.
“She wants to be a boy,” Angie said. “So we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys’ everything. She thinks she’s one of the brothers.
The Advocate, a LGBT magazine applauded Brad and Angelina’s support of John’s exploration and expression, citing their recent decision to wear a suit on the red carpet premiere of Angie’s flick, ‘Unbroken,’ as an example.
It is nice to see both Brad and Angelina supporting their child during this crucial phase in their daughter’s life where she is exploring her gender exploration.
