#BBCtrending: Meet my transgender kid

A video about Milla, a transgender child from New Zealand, recently reached 7 million views on Facebook. It was made and posted by Milla's mother.

It's not the first such video. On various social media networks, parents of transgender children are using social media to "come out" about their children's gender identity. The videos are popular, but serious concerns are also being raised about the impact on children when parents do this.
