The health care of transgender patients

Exploring sexuality, including gender and sexual behaviors is a normal part of childhood. At
some point, many children experiment with gender expression and roles. However, for
unknown and probably multifactorial biologic and psychosocial reasons, in some children,
cross-gender behavior and expression is more consistent, persistent, and insistent than it is
among their peers. These are not choices per se, but reflect an innate preference of the child. Co-host Dr. Thad Woodard explores the social, mental health, and medical concerns of transgender individuals on this Line One program.
