Trans Teens Speak to their Future Selves

Imagine how it feels to be born a guy but that everything you feel about yourself, deep down, relates more to being a girl…or vice versa.

In this video, transgender teens send messages to themselves in ten years time. If you’re in this position, you can take some reassurance in knowing that you’re not alone; and if you’re not, then hopefully this will help to relate to those who are.

Acceptance and understanding of transgendered issues are on the up. But there is still a lot of work to be done to provide transgendered teens with the support and care they need to be themselves.
