(Grand)Moms for Transgender Equality: Annie

by Hayley Miller February 22, 2016


Annie always knew there was something special about her grandchild, Kaycee.

“I knew it was something different about Kaycee,” she said in a new HRC video. “Kaycee didn’t have to tell me. I knew it."

While Kaycee was worried about coming out to her family as transgender, her grandmother stood by her side every step of the way.

“Love your child, love your grandchild,” she concluded. “You don’t know what you’re missing.”

Many LGBT young people lack crucial support from their families, and instead are rejected, leaving them at risk for homelessness, substance abuse, depression, and suicide. Up to 40 percent of homeless youth identify as LGBT.

Watch the video below and for more information on supporting and caring for transgender and gender-expansive children and youth, visit hrc.org/trans-youth.
