What Happened When Transgender Teens Spoke To Their Future Selves 10 Years From Now

A group of transgender teenagers spoke to their future selves 10 years from now, in a beautifully moving video which focused on acceptance and self-worth.

Speaking directly to the camera, the American teens revealed their struggles with friends and family and how coming out as transgender had affected their confidence.

"Just be happy please, because I'm miserable right now," one teen says, nervously laughing.

Another, who broke down in tears, added: "I hope that you can look in the mirror and finally be happy with who you are, and have people who are happy with who you are too."
