Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Trans youth transitioning. On this edition of OutCasting, we consider transgender youth who want to start medical transition at a relatively early age. Of course, parents often worry that their children may be too young to know what they really want, that medical transition may include surgery and other medical treatments that can be difficult or impossible to undo. So whats the best answer? What options are available to transgender youth? Are there benefits to starting transition early? Are there disadvantages? And what kinds of considerations go into making these decisions?

To answer some of these questions, OutCaster Lauren talks with Dr. John Steever, a physician, and Dr. Matthew Oransky, a psychologist. Both doctors work at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York and help young transgender people with transitioning. This is the second part of a two part series.
