RESOURCES: a happy transgender story

Life can be challenging, disruptive, dangerous, and unhappy for transgender individuals. We’ve heard a lot of rough stories about people who may or may not have made it through the transition facing every kind of difficulty — social, spiritual, financial, medical, hormonal, physical, interpersonal. Here’s one story that is quite happy. In a little over four minutes, Skylar narrates his story as a slideshow of photos of his life. Not every trans person has his privileges and blessings — he seems to have extraordinary acceptance by his family and peers, financial resources sufficient to have $7500 worth of top surgery as a college freshman, good healthcare. Um, he’s white. Nevertheless, his video is worth watching to hear the story from the beginning and understand that the story can have a happy ending.
