Family of transgender woman forced to leave regional QLD

A SCHOOL principal and her family are moving to Brisbane because her transgender child, 21, cannot get sympathetic help from allied health professionals in their regional area.

The mother said that 18 months ago their child, who was born a boy, revealed she had felt she was a girl since the age of 14.

The mother said it was "a great relief" to her and her husband when she told them why she had been so unhappy and their two other children had accepted her choice to transition to a girl.

"I threw my arms around her and said 'I love you, regardless' and my husband did the same," the mother said.

While their "pretty" child still presents as a male in the local community, she is taking feminising hormones and will openly start her new life as a young woman next year in Brisbane.
