According to Radar Online, Warren Beatty and Annette Bening‘s transgender son – who was born Kathlyn Elizabeth Beatty but revealed in 2010 that she was actually a transgender male going by the name of Stephen Ira Beatty – recently recorded a video clip for WeHappyTrans.com, a website that provides a place for people to “share positive trans* perspectives.”
“My name is Stephen,” the young man says. “I identify as a trans man, a f*ggy queen, a homosexual, a queer, a nerd fighter, a writer, an artist and a guy who needs a haircut.”
The 20-year-old goes on to answer the question of who has been most supportive of his transition but fails to mention his parents or family at all.
“My friends, my peers, who I’m lucky to have relationships with a lot of ever since high school which is when I came out and transitioned socially when I was 14 or so,” he says. “It’s nice to finally be able to have my identity be legible to people and I really am enjoying and appreciating that.”
“I would like people to be more intentional with their actions and with their language and to realize that words mean things. I would like us to imagine more complexly,” Stephen explains. “I would like people to understand that other people are people in the same way that they are people!”
“I am going to have babies!” he jokes. “And give them onsies with ‘This Is What A Transfeminist Looks Like’ on them!”
