In the sad, hetero-normative world we live in, I can't even pretend to imagine how difficult it must be for trans people to find acceptance for just trying to be true to their selves.

The process of transitioning is not easy. Sometimes, people they are close to, do not offer the mental and emotional support that is needed. Which is why, a mother's unconditional love is so important.

This video, featuring Alex, a trans man, shows how awesome it is to have a supportive mother. Have a look.

This year, Mother's Day falls on May 10th.
