Crossover Kids

 

In the US more and more children are defining themselves as transgender, throwing up a number of complex questions. Following first-grader Coy Mathis, this report investigates the world of transgender kids.

 

 

She likes dressing up, gravitates towards the colour pink, and enjoys playing with her dolls…but Coy was born a boy. For kids like Coy, living as the other gender can end years of unhappiness and feelings of “being born into the wrong body”. Yet transgender communities face deep social stigma and discrimination in the US. So how young is too young to change sex?

 

Jeannette Francis investigates the complex and fascinating world of transgender children.

 

 

Backed by medical experts, a growing number of parents in the United States are allowing their kids to live openly as the other gender. For the children involved, the switch can end years of unhappiness and feelings of being trapped in the wrong body. But like other members of the transgender community, they can face deep social stigma and discrimination. So how young is too young to change sex?

    Paris Is Burning is a 1990 documentary film directed by Jennie Livingston. Filmed in the mid-to-late 1980s, it chronicles the ball culture of New York City and the poor, African American and Latino gay and transgendered community involved in it. Many consider Paris Is Burning to be an invaluable documentary of the end of the "Golden Age" of New York City drag balls, as well as a thoughtful exploration of race, class, and gender in America.

    Surely one of the most well-known tranny-related tunes of all time. Any self-respecting t*girl (and, in fact, pretty much anyone of a certain age) knows that Lou's song starts by describing Holly who 'shaved her legs and then he was a she'. Take a walk on the obvious side?

    The intriguing tale of a poor virgin lad who stumbles into a Soho bar and falls under the spell of a sultry tranny siren. 'Girls will be boys and boys will be girls. Its a mixed up muddled up shook up world except for Lola'. A tranny anthem if ever there was one
