Meri reshared her child’s announcement to her Instagram story with the caption, “You are my sunshine.” In their latest IG post, Leon wore shorts and a t-shirt, while posing outside a large door frame. 

They shed more light on their coming out journey in the caption. “I remember the first time that i knew i wasn’t a girl,” they wrote.

“I was pretty young & unfortunately i grew up in a context that was incredibly gendered & restrictive. so i continued to be socialized as a girl & later a woman. and here’s the thing, i’m finally ready to share my favorite self with the world. and that self is incredibly genderqueer, trans, and unapologetic.”

Leon had come out as gay in season 11 of Sister Wives back in 2017, as per an ET Canada report. “Being queer & trans are definitely some of my favorite parts of myself,” they stated in the Instagram post.

“And yet, there are so many things that i am learning to love about myself through this process. here’s to me getting to know myself, share myself, and continually evolve to be the person i am, to be my favorite self in all contexts.”
