Being Me (Four Corners)

About

There are any number of self help books that will tell you how to find yourself. But what if truly being yourself involved changing your gender? Would you have the courage to do it? Eleven-year-old Isabelle does. To the world she looked like a young boy. But she knew that she was really a girl.

Being Me tells Isabelle’s story and the story of the family, the doctor and ultimately the community that backed her decision to truly be herself. Isabelle’s story is remarkable and inevitably raises many questions for families, doctors and society in general.

Along the way, meet other people who've confronted the same feelings and discover that a growing and significant number of children are finding themselves in the same situation.

It’s a story not to be missed.
