An 11-year-old Canadian boy goes public with his story to help kids like him
Wren’s mother, Wen, explained her son wanted to “express who he was” by the time he was 4. He wanted to wear boys clothes and would ask “when do I get to be a boy?” His parents were still on the fence on how to handle his transition, until his sister Ava said to them, “Wren wants to be a boy. He really wants to be boy. He really is a boy.” The family went to a psychiatrist who told them to allow Wren to live as a boy. They did and he is a much happier child. He will undergo hormone therapy and, if he chooses, sex reassignment surgery later on.
