More than 2,000 children were referred by GPs, schools and support groups to gender reassignment clinics
The pictures are a celebration of the "beauty" of the physical transition of changing gender.
An eight-month-old baby is possibly the first person in the world to have their gender marked as ‘unknown’ on their health card. Searyl Atli’s gender has marked with a ‘U’ on her Canadian health card, standing for ‘undetermined’ or ‘unassigned’. The baby’s parent, Kori Doty, does not identify as male or female and prefers to use the pronoun ‘they’, and wants to raise Searyl’s genderless until the baby has a “sense of self and command of vocabulary to tell me who they are”.
As well as learning their ABCs children at nursery school could soon be taught about same-sex relationships and transgender lifestyles. That’s if teachers have their way.
Musician Jaimie Wilson, who was born a woman but has now transitioned to a man, has been sharing beautiful before and after images of himself on Instagram in a bid to show that not all trans people exhibit signs of identifying with the opposite gender before they transition.
Known as one of the world’s first transgender models, Caroline Cossey has paved the way for the trans community. After travelling the world as a showgirl, Caroline embarked on a successful career as a model appearing in major fashion and pin-up magazines. In 1974, Caroline went through her final gender reassignment surgery.
Just days ago, President Donald Trump revoked previously-established guidance allowing trans kids to use the bathroom that corresponds to their gender identity in the US. Cue Rebekah, a transgender girl who has something to say about that, as a photo of her holding a sign reading “I’m the scary transgender person the media warned you about” has become incredibly popular online.
