Watch how this mom refuses to let her nine-year-old trans son become a ‘statistic’

A proud mother has shared her nine-year-old’s transgender journey on Facebook, calling for him to be accepted.

The video, uploaded by Renée Fabish, shows her adorable son Milla Taige Brown. A male name has not yet been chosen.

‘The only thing that’s changed is the pronoun,’ Fabish says.

‘A frightening percentage of our transgender community suffer mental health issues. All due to the lack of acceptance and constant bullying they are subjected to everyday. Around half self-harm or attempt suicide.

‘We are not willing to let our child become a part of those statistics. Our child deserves the right to be happy like any other.’

Milla says: ‘It’s not easy being me. I’m having a really hard time at school at the moment. Kids tease me all the time, they call me shim, gay girl and weirdo. People just don’t understand me.

‘I want people to accept me for who I am.’
