Changing one’s sexuality owing to personal desires is no more a taboo in the 21st Century. Many Hollywood celebrities, including Ryland Adams, James Adomian, Clay Aiken, Cris Alexander, Chad Allen, and many more, have boldly accepted their unique sexual identities and have come out in public with pride and grace.
Similarly, Jamie Lee Curtis has supported her son in his fight against the orthodox measures of sexuality and normality set by our society.
After her initiative, people who belong to the LGBT community are no longer bound to hide their original identities and live their lives as a clone that fits in the so-called sexuality standards.
Please read this article and learn all the interesting facts about the inspirational journey of Thomas Guest toward becoming transgender.
Who Is Jamie Curtis?
Jamie Lee Curtis is a 64 years old actress who rose to fame for her exceptional performances in Hollywood movies ‘Halloween,’ ‘Fangoria,’ ‘Mother’s Boys,’ and ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once.’
She was born on 22 November 1958 to actors Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh. She also has a star on Hollywood Walk Of Fame.
Curtis tied the knot with the famous screenwriter, director, and comedian Christopher Guest in 1984. After many failed attempts to conceive naturally, the couple decided to adopt two children. They finally became parents to the boy Thomas Guest and the girl Annie Guest through adoption because they faced fertility issues.
Mother Of Thomas Guest Breaking All The Barriers
Although Jamie Curtis is not the biological mother of Thomas and Annie, she has always loved them unconditionally. She said in an interview that her life changed after she became a mother.
The BAFTA Award winner also admitted that she chooses her roles carefully now because she is more concerned about her children.
She has been a very opinionated woman throughout her career, and it is obvious that she would leave no stone unturned in helping her own son, who was facing serious issues in his personal life.
Curtis realized that her son Thomas was not straight at an early age. Being an optimistic mother, she never forced his son to behave normally and decompress his inner instincts.
Rather she projected that society should have no concern with the sexuality of a person. That is why his son got the courage to come in front of the world with a new identity.
Thomas Guest’s Adoption and Early Life
He was born in California in March 1996. After getting adopted by renowned Hollywood professionals Jamie Curtiz and Christopher Guest, he lived a lavish life. Thomas attended Mary Hardin-Baylor University after completing his early education at Santa Monica High School.
Son of the Halloween star usually prefers to stay away from the eyes of media and netizens. However, several people still stalk him because of his association with renowned actress Jamie Curtis.
After completing his graduation in 2015, Thomas started his professional career as a video game editor.
He seldom appears at public events and award ceremonies along with his mother and even starred in two television shows, ‘World of Warcraft: Looking for Group’ and ‘Game Grumps.’ It is evident that the acting field did not appeal to him, and he chose to be a gamer instead.
Thomas is 26 years old at the moment. She stands taller than her mother at 5 feet 7 inches, with a body weight of approximately 65 kg. Apart from that, she has hazel-colored eyes, and her hair color is dark brown.
Ruby Guest’s Relationship With Parents And Sister
Thomas Guest has become closer to her family after changing her identity to Ruby. Her parents love how she is and respect her decision to become transgender. She also shares a pleasant bond with her sister Annie Guest, a passionate dance instructor.
Ruby has received a warm welcome from her family members, and all of them have been very much outspoken about her new personality.
Struggles During Transformation
Jamie has always supported her children in their personal and professional lives. She said in an interview that it was a wonderful experience for her and her husband to see their son transforming into their daughter Ruby.
She believes that a person should be free to choose his own identity. Consequently, Thomas did not have difficulty deciding what he wanted to be in life.
The Scream Queens actress revealed the identity of her transgender son, Thomas Guest, during an interview in July 2021.
“Chris and I have watched in wonder and pride as our son became our daughter Ruby,” said Jamie Curtis.aarp.org
The mother of Ruby Guest also added that she has left all the old thoughts behind and has improvised her ideas according to the modern age. That’s what life is.
Jamie Lee Curtis As A Child Rights Activist
She has come out as a very strong supporter of the LGBT community. In addition to her social campaigns, she also shared a long post on her Twitter handle in 2017 titled “Dear Trans Kids: The letter we all wish we had written.”
Jamie is also a motivational speaker and writer who mainly focuses on Child Welfare. She is the author of many books including ‘It’s Hard To Be Five,’ ‘Big Words For Little People,’ ‘Is There Really A Human Race,’ ‘My Mommy Hung The Moon,’ and many more.
She plans to release another children’s book ‘Mother Nature’ in June of next year. She aims to break the norm and make this world a better place to live for everyone.
She propagates that all children should have equal rights irrespective of their gender and sexuality. Ruby’s mother has also co-founded a welfare organization for children’s health called the Syzygy Foundation.
We can say that Ruby is a lucky person as she got the back of a mother like Jamie Lee Curtis, who supported her in taking such a big step. Although our society has started accepting the variety in genders and sexual preferences, there is still a long way.
We wish Ruby all the luck for her upcoming life with a new identity and hope that all the transgender people get the respect and rights they deserve, just like her.
