I thought the article on transgender kids was very moving. It displayed the bravery and understanding required by the family. In the UK we had a reality series on C4 called My Transsexual Summer that bought together 6 transgender people at various stages of their transitions. I normally avoid reality TV but this show appears to have been a positive influence on all involved and handled the subject in a sensitive and adult manner. Try and catch it on Channel 4 On Demand website.
