Transgender Kids explores the divisive debate over whether a child should be free to make permanent changes to their gender.

Dr Kenneth Zucker once ran the largest public clinic in Toronto for treating children and adolescents with gender dysphoria: an often violent feeling that the body they were born in does not match their true gender. But then Zucker was fired and his clinic closed down amid comparisons to a religious zealot trying to ‘cure’ homosexuality.

His supporters believe he is a victim of a virulent form of transgender politics that stifles freedom of speech. The programme features interviews with Zucker, his patients, the families, the clinicians and transgender activists.
