Logan Brown, a biological woman who identifies as a man, was recently featured on the cover of Glamour UK’s June issue, sporting a bulbous, pregnant belly with no shirt on. The magazine’s Pride month issue has garnered fierce backlash online.
The New York Post reported that Brown had become pregnant unexpectedly with partner Bailey J Mills, who is reportedly a non-binary drag queen in the UK. Brown stopped taking testosterone after a spate of health issues, according to the report.
In Glamour, Brown was interviewed by Chloe Laws just two weeks before Brown gave birth to a daughter, going into detail about the trans person’s accidental pregnancy. Laws stated that Brown and Mills were apparently launched into the spotlight after being on the receiving end of “rampant transphobia” from those online who rightly stated that “men can’t get pregnant” on Brown’s social media posts.
Brown said: "I’ve been brought up in a very close-knit family, and so to bring a baby into the world in a queer relationship is the best feeling ever.”
“I feel like we’ll be able to love and appreciate each other, and my daughter will be able to grow up knowing that she’ll always be loved and accepted for whoever she is. And I think that’s a really important thing for her to be around.”
Brown is also reportedly writing a children’s book, entitled My Daddy’s Belly: The Miracle of Male Birth. She described her childhood as littered with “really bad mental health” issues. The Post reported that after Brown had initially come out as lesbian, she wanted to test out the “identity of being trans” before ultimately settling on the moniker of “queer.”
It is a scientific fact that only women can become pregnant. Brown’s pregnancy is a product of being a biological woman and laying off testosterone treatment for an extended amount of time. Though Brown has suggested that she is a man that had become pregnant, this is not scientifically accurate.
