This song was written for my friends in the Trans Community, although its message -- courageous action one takes when deciding to be truly 'authentic' and live the life he/she 'knows' is the right choice -- can apply to other groups, as well. I continue to write what i call Peaceful Activism songs because i believe in equality for all, living without unnecessary labeling, and being kind to one another. Here are the lyrics to "Let Me Be Me"... Sherri LET ME BE ME - BY SHERRI GRAY, 5/7/15 Shadows...Secrets...Silent Sin...and Shame. I've pretended all my life...I'm weary of the game. All day..all night...i hide my deepest truth: I'm not who you think I am...I've known this since my youth. Sometimes i wish upon a star for a world that would be kind, where we are loved for who we are...with open heart, and open mind. There's a child within my spirit...and it prays that i might hear it... "LET ME FLY...SET ME FREE...LET ME BE ME..." For from the essence of my soul, to the marrow of my bone, I've never felt complete or whole...my body never felt like home. Is my essence slowly dying as that child within is crying, "LET ME FLY...SET ME FREE...LET ME BE ME...' All day...all night...dreaming dreams that never cease. I wish i could be born again, and truly live in peace. Sadness, sorrow...hiding scars that will not heal. I know what the reason is... I never have been real. I've lived a lifetime underground when i know that i can fly. That's the truth i've finally found...and i know i have to try. And the child within my spirit knows at last that i can hear it, "LET ME FLY...SET ME FREE...LET ME BE ME...' For from the essence of our soul to the marrow of our bone, Together we're complete and whole...we live together in this home. Now our journey has begun...we are no longer two....but one... Just watch us fly... We'll touch the sky.... No longer "we"... NOW. I'M. JUST. ME.......

When Mimi and Joe Lemay’s baby was born in 2010, they heard the three words every parent waits to hear: “It’s a girl.” But by age two, their child was saying “I’m a boy.” Mimi hoped this “obsession with being a boy would go away,” but it only grew stronger. Now, in a rare and candid interview, they share in their own words why they decided to let their five-year-old transgender son Jacob transition and live publicly as a boy.NBC’s Kate Snow will have more on Transgender Kids beginning Tuesday night on Nightly News.
