The second video in The Scene's 'affirmation' series features loving parents of trans kids.
A new video from The Scene highlights one of the purest, most wonderful things in the world: a parent's love for their child.
In late 2016, the site released a heartwarming video of dads and their daughters sharing some affirmations in front of a mirror. They're back again with a new video, this time featuring transgender children and their parents.
What makes the video so powerful, so exceptional, is that for many trans kids, love is a hard thing to come by — even from their own parents. But it's amazing what the power of love can do.
The world can be pretty cruel to trans people, and as a result, they experience negative and often life-altering outcomes — unemployment, homelessness, suicide attempts, poverty, and more — at a disproportionately high rate compared to the rest of the population.
