This grows out of sobering statistics: Transgender teens and adults suffer high rates of depression, homelessness and substance abuse.
Underscoring these statistics are the devastating stories of suicides by teens Leelah Alcorn in Ohio in 2014 and Skylar Lee in Wisconsin last fall.
They tried to explain the difference between being a tomboy and an actual boy. He was certain, even if his parents weren't, that he was a boy.
After more than three years, which entailed many discussions with their family, a psychologist and a gender specialist, John's parents came to support that identity.
Unlike the other boys in his class, however, when John was born his parents and his doctors said he was a girl.
His parents tried to point out that, in fact, girls could wear or do anything boys could.
Media reports suggest they both struggled to gain parental acceptance of their identities.But there are more hopeful stories, and we have seen them first-hand.They let him to go to school and everywhere else as a boy — what is called a “social transition.”John's is not the commonly told transgender story.The dominant narrative is that transgender people's lives are characterized by trauma, victimization, mental health problems and unhappiness.
