We want the BBC to air and stream "Transgender Kids:Who Knows Best?" for American viewers!

"Transgender Kids: Who Knows Best?" investigates the practices of the now closed CAMH Child Youth and Family Gender Identity Clinic under the leadership of Dr. Kenneth Zucker. This documentary allows Dr. Zucker, his staff, and families who received treatment at the clinic to explain the paradigm the clinic practiced of developmentally informed care for childhood gender dysphoria. The approach of the staff of Dr. Zucker has been maligned by trans activists as "reparative therapy" which sought to prevent a child from choosing medical interventions to affirm a trans identity. Trans activists ultimately targeted Dr. Zucker with false claims about inappropriate comments to a patient and continue to spread libelous, demonstrably false stories about the care he and his staff provided. 

Dr. Zucker, his staff, and families who received care at the clinic dispute the claim that care that respects the cognitive and emotional development of children is "reparative therapy" which seeks to prevent medical transition. They speak to a clinically informed view that the possibilities for discernment of a permanent trans identity and deep self knowledge are different for children of different levels of development.  It is important that Americans, especially families seeking to understand how to support children with gender dysphoria, are given detailed information about Dr. Zucker's approach beyond the incorrect claims of trans activists. More information, rather than less, is needed by individuals making decisions about how to approach their gender dysphoria, and family members seeking to support their children experiencing gender dysphoria. For the well being of individuals who experience gender dysphoria, and for the loved ones who wish to support them, it's important this program is aired in America.
