How Ky turned into Niels

Fri Aug 21 2015 10:50 • 20 min

Article 8 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child: 'Every child has the right to be who he/she wants to be.'

Messing with fireworks, ring and run and a lot of football practice. This makes Ky really happy, but she has also been unhappy for years because she has a girl’s body.

Last summer Ky finally managed to tell her parents she wants to become a boy. And she would like to have a different name: Niels. Together with her friend Sterre, who used to be called Tibor and therefore has a boy’s body, they tell their new secondary school class that they are transgender children. It is the beginning of a new life as Niels.
