Keeping Up With Kairah: A Trans Teen Story
Going back to school each year can be tough for any kid. Old friends, new faces, a whole new set of subjects and responsibilities to tackle.
But imagine coming back from summer vacation not just 3 months older and maybe a little more bronzed than when your friends last saw you, but actually, as a whole new gender. A whole new person.
That’s what going back to school this fall is like for 15-year-old UK teen Kairah Kelly. Looking at her now, it may by hard to believe that just a few short months ago, the teen left school as a boy named Tyler.
Now, Kairah is tackling the world head on as a woman — the gender he’s always truly identified with.
