Private Project

Beyond Pink and Baby Blue

Children have a sense of their own gender identity long before they enter puberty. Sophia, 6, and Nuka 13, are good examples, because at the age of 2 they knew that they were transgender. Fortunately, their parents took them seriously when they said their felt gender roles did not match their bodies. By talking to children, parents, teachers and doctors, this documentary tries to discuss what families, the environment, education and society in general can do to help transgender children to live without suppression.
