As the debate about which bathroom transgender people should use continues, a more complex question is emerging about how early the medical transition begins for trans kids.
Families and doctors are rewriting the rules as they decide when and how to start medical intervention before transgender youth hit puberty. In a special VICE on HBO episode, VICE correspondent Gianna Toboni explores this emotionally charged and rapidly evolving issue with trans youth and their parents in the midst of this intense process.
On August 9, New America NYC and VICEpresented a special screening of VICE on HBO's Trans Youth at Lincoln Center, followed by a talkback with the segment's producers and some of the featured family members on the state of the transgender rights movement today.
