When a teacher sets you a project, thinking of an appropriate theme can be very difficult.
So when Benton Sorensen’s professor assigned the class an ‘inspiration’ project, he looked no further than himself to be the subject.
The video, uploaded to his YouTube channel, shows him bravely giving his presentation to his class and telling them all about his background.
Through a series of stories and old photos, he tells his new classmates he is transgender.
Sorensen, who describes himself as a ‘modified man’, is a prolific YouTuber who posts videos about his experiences of being transgender.
He has previously shared videos about how to be a good trans ally, hormone treatments and voice comparison videos.
Several users congratulated Sorensen on filming such a big step.
‘Wow! That was very inspirational, and touching! I think you are incredibly brave, and I can’t wait to see what you will do in the future!’ said user Deborah Morrison.
‘This made me wanna cry! You’re amazing Benton :)’ commented user Jessica Marie.
