'If I have to go through puberty, I don't think I'll make it': Emotional short film shows the struggles transgender teens face - including being bullied and not knowing which toilet to use at school

A hard-hitting new short film released for Trans Awareness Week highlights the anxiety and struggles many trans teenagers face.

The five-minute video, Listen, features five young trans actors and was directed by trans actor and writer Jake Graf, who is married to Britain's highest ranking trans soldier, Hannah

Documenting some of the common struggles young trans people go through, the film sees one trans girl terrified of the onset of male puberty.
Another trans girl is enjoying the first flushes of romance but her boyfriend won't acknowledge her when he's with his friends.

And a heartbreaking scene sees a trans boy trying not to eat or drink because he's terrified of using the toilet.

Puberty is a hard time for all teens. I hated it, personally. I'm not sure where this is all leading, what with all the bullying and hate in the world. Acceptance doesn't seem to be something humans do very well. And kids can be incredibly cruel.
