One mother has given her 14-year-old transgender daughter, Corey, the best present she could have wished for — her first prescription of estrogen.
Erica Maison caught the amazing moment on camera, which has now gone viral.
Talking to Buzzfeed, Erica shared that Corey came out as transgender over two years ago after watching a video of Jazz Jennings online.
“She said, ‘Mum, I’m just like her, I AM a girl,’”.
Jazz’s story first received attention in 2007, when she and other transgender children were interviewed for 20/20 by Barbara Walters.
Erica hopes that Corey’s video will inspire and educate others.
“I think one of the biggest issues with our society today is that people just don’t understand what being transgender actually means,” she told Buzzfeed. “I want people to watch this video, and see the raw emotion of a transgender child that can finally live her life the way she feels inside. I want people to see this, because maybe it will open their eyes.”
This video is so beautiful and something everyone should watch.
