Watched this item the other night on Australian Story and it was truly uplifting. There’s tragically a lot of fearmongering about trans kids accessing appropriate medical care but this story made it clear how essential it is – and, I think, was also very reassuring about how careful and stepped treatment is (e.g. puberty blockers are given early on, hormones started years later, surgery available only once kids have turned 18 – with informed consent needed every step of the way). Very glad trans kids in Victoria have access to this resource.
