Stephen Ira Beatty: 'If You Can't Handle Having a Trans Kid, Don't Have Kids'

UPDATE: Warren Beatty speaks about his transgender son for the first time, calls him his "hero." Read HERE.

This is a few years old, but the trans movement has made such huge strides recently I thought it was worth revisiting. Warren Beatty and Annette Benig's trans son, Stephen, recorded a video for #WeHappyTrans when he was 20 years old. (He identifies as a "trans man, a faggy queen, a homosexual, a queer, a nerd fighter and an artist," idolizes Truman Capote and talks really fast!) These days, Stephen says on his Twitter profile that he's a writer and co-editor of Vetch: A Magazine of Trans Poetry & Poetics. He also spoke out when Leelah Alcorn took her life in 2015.
