A divorce and marriage announcement that is shocking for the Mississinewa High School Class of 2001 Alumni. The 20 year relationship between yours truly and living as a male is over. Instead, yours truly will be hitching up with the female gender identity named “Ava.” The decision to come out as a transwoman and identifying as a lesbian is over a Zinn family fullfillment.If you have been the family of the late Margaret Zinn, you’ve seen her as a longtime employee of NoSirGifts, the mother of the late Albert Zinn, an Eastbrook High School Class of 1996 and automotive mechanic. The late Margaret Zinn has had two sons, Albert and Frank. But within ten years, Margaret’s youngest son will be undergoing a gender transition from male to female and the late Albert Zinn will be the only son of the late Margaret Zinn. What does that mean for you–a loyal friend and fan of Franky Zinn? “As a woman, I will still pursue a typical male-female relationship. I’m still going to be a father. I’m still going to continue the typical male chores. I will not be wearing male underclothes and I will not be wearing any male clothes like a suit, dress shirt, and tie,” commentted Zinn. Zinn says that living as a woman and becoming a lesbian is more contempoary and it is what people want to see. “As a male, I am not attracting the young female demographics, and I am not attracting the new generation, the new generation of socialism.” Franky Zinn is part of a developing group of biological males that are part of a new Indiana law that prohibits discriminates against someone’s sexual orientation and gender identity. In return for leaving the male gender and joining up with the female gender, INTRAA or the Indiana Transgender Rights Advocacy and Alliance, plans on seeing Zinn as a major coup. And that marriage between Frank and Angela, a biological male and female, will be biologically straight, but as Ava and Angela, they will be lesbians. “More people say to me since high school, ‘I know you like women a little bit older than you, and you have a hard time pursuing a relationship, I just can’t see you as a gay guy.’ So I think, I will be able to convert future realtionships with women in the event should Angela and I divorce to lesbians. Aeverine Zinn’s decision to live her life authentically represents an important step forward, both for her personally and for all who are committed to advancing discussions about fairness and equality for transgender people. Coming out as a transwoman and lesbian is an extremely personal decision and one that is never made lightly. We look forward to hearing Ava’s story in her own words in the future. We do encourage media outlets to cover this story accurately, as we do with all other public figures, and to avoid speculation about the details of Ava’s story before she is ready to tell it in her own words. The Associated Press Stylebook call on media to use the name and pronoun preferred by the transgender person – in this case, referring to her as Ava and using female pronouns. The changes are scheduled to be taking place next year.
