Documentary

back

Jon is a typical teenage boy in all respects except one: he was born a girl. Brought up as Natasha for 15 years, Jon can remember feeling male since he was only five years old. He has been diagnosed with gender dysphoria, a condition that affects over 100 British children every year, and is now embarking on an extraordinary journey of transition. In Green Bay's Channel Four film, Director Julia Moon follows mother and son through the first three months of Jon's life-changing treatment as the testosterone pushes his female body into male puberty.

Watched by more than a million people, 'The Boy who was born a Girl' comfortably outperformed series and slot averages, winning widespread acclaim in the UK press.
