Transgender Kids

Thursday, Apr. 12 at 9pm ET / 10 PT

What would you do if your young son was desperate to become a girl - or if your daughter wanted to be a boy? This shocking yet touching documentary offers a rare, intimate look into the world of children who believe they were born the wrong sex. Diagnosed with gender identity disorder, their childhoods include puberty blockers, hormone injections, cross-dressing and a struggle for social acceptance. How far are they willing to go to change their gender? How young is too young? And how should parents respond?

Transgender Kids follows the lives of four transgender children and the parents who have chosen to support them as they transition to the opposite sex.
