“I was born male and identify as female. But I like to say that I’m a girl stuck in a boy’s body,” nine-year-old Lia Hegarty tells FRONTLINE.
Lia shares her story in “Growing Up Trans,” a documentary coming to FRONTLINE (PBS) on June 30. The 90-minute special follows eight kids who are transitioning, ranging from ages 9 to 19 — and shows how a new generation of kids and their parents are navigating the changing and complicated world of gender and identity, with new medical options and at younger and younger ages.
Watch “Growing Up Trans” Tuesday, June 30 at 10/9c on PBS & online: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/growing-up-trans/
