Is it a boy or a girl? Many parents learn the answer before their baby is born, and most expect their children to develop a gender identity that mirrors biological sex within their first few years. But for transgender and gender nonconforming children, gender identity unfolds throughout childhood, adolescence and into early adulthood.
Eight families with transgender and gender non-conforming children ranging in ages from 5 to 25 share their stories. With the healthy development of their children at stake, parents must confront binary perceptions of gender, widespread transphobia and controversial parenting decisions.
The first "It Gets Better" video of its kind: Featuring parents from PFLAG's support group for families of transgender children sharing their personal struggles to understand their child's needs and find support for both themselves and their families.
Great video. My wife is trans and she dearly wishes she had the support that the parents in this video have shown to their children. Hormone blockers are amazing. If only they had been around a couple decades ago.
my transgender daughter was at the conference and we saw her in one of the shots...this is such a necessary video...society must learn to see our children through kinder eyes...stuff like this will help
I do not feel anger at those who cannot understand such insanity as much as i feel envy. No one wants this for themselves. I came out at 52 and it was a good thing, but don't think for a second I actually choose to be what I am! True, these children are very brave, but so are these parents who confronted what is supposed to be true with reality.
