Ok, prepare to feel all the feels, because they’re coming for you in the form of an emotional as-all-hell video that we’re gonna give you a bit of background to first…
American teen Corey Maison was born male but has identified as female since the age of 11, when he watched a video by trans YouTube star Jazz Jennings and it finally clicked – he was trapped in the wrong body.
Now 14, Corey (she’s kept her name) has been waiting more than 2.5 years to begin hormone replacement therapy – the huge step in the gender reassignment process – and finally got her wish last week.
Arriving home from school, mum Erica surprised her with the estrogen pills she’s been waiting for from a specialist in Chicago, wrapped up in a plastic bag to keep her guessing.
Corey’s reaction, when she finally clues onto what’s in the box?
Erica posted the video to YouTube with this sweet AF description:
“Today after waiting 2 1/2 years she FINALLY got her estrogen. I picked it up while she was in school so she had no idea. We have been waiting months for the readiness letter to be finalized and sent to Chicago, so had no idea on a timeline of when it would actually happen. Sorry I had to stop recording because we were both blubbering sobbing fools LOL. September 24th is a day I will remember for the rest of my life!”
Someone hold us.
