This is a well produced documentary about children growing up in a trans situation. It is nice to know that there are medical professionals out there now, that are willing to help families in this stressful time. I found this video very informative and educational. I was not aware of the trans lifestyle.

Originally broadcast as part of the PBS series Frontline on June 30, 2015, this 86-minute documentary delves into various stories of transgender kids.
Just a generation ago, it ws adults, not kids, who changed genders.
Today, suprisingly, many children are transitioning frome male to female or the other way around.
The film takes you on an intimate and eye-opening journey inside this new frontier.
It is a quite informative and profoundly thought-provoking documentary that would definitely open your eyes to unimaginable complications and minds of the kids and their parents.
