About The Series

‘Transkids’ is a five-part personal portrait series that follows four transgender teenagers at different stages of their transition process. Through their stories, we learn about the personal and social implications of being a transgender minor. The series brings up questions of morality and medical ethics that come into play when talking about making such drastic irreversible changes to a healthy person’s body at such a young age. In Transkids, we get a glimpse of day to day life, from social events to doctors’ meetings. We learn to relate and identify with the characters through the difficulties, dilemmas, and obstacles they face on their quest for change and acceptance as transgenders, but also, just as teenagers.
