Transgender teenager finds out her life is about to change forever in moving video

Corey Maison from Detroit, Michigan, had been waiting over two years for her first dose of hormones - a landmark set to change her life forever.

Speaking of the emotional moment Corey's mother Erica said: "I could tell she really had no idea what was happening."

She told BuzzFeed:

This was it, this was the most pivotal turning point in her life, and we both knew it.

She squeezed me, and I stopped the camera so I could hug her back. Neither of us let go for what seemed like an eternity.

"I knew I was taking a chance for negativity when I set it to public, but I did it anyway," said Erica.

I think one of the biggest issues with our society today is that people just don't understand what being transgender actually means. I want people to watch this video, and see the raw emotion of a transgender child that can finally live her life the way she feels inside.

I want people to see this, because maybe it will open their eyes.

No child would ever choose to be transgender, it is 100 per cent how they are born.
