Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikInspirationHealthFamilyCeleb Kidz

This is FANTASTIC!

Warren Beatty and Annette Bening's have a transgender son named Stephen Ira, and he's amazeballz! Not only does he stand up for what he believes in, but those things he believes aim at helping the lives of others. You know, like opposing a New York State Medicaid regulation that excludes transgender people from accessing healthcare.

So he joined a PSA to fight that shizz!

Here's a taste of what he says in the video:

"I grew up outside of New York, but I've always known I've wanted to move here for the city's vibrant artistic community. As a trans person, I would hope that I'd be welcomed but many trans people aren't because we don't have the basic healthcare coverage we need to survive."

The whole video, produced by GLAAD and the Sylvia Rivera Law Project, is just incredible

We love this, and whole-heartedly support the cause!!

Watch the beauty (above)!
