Milan is a 14 year old superstar transboy who lives in Prince George, B.C. He transitioned two years ago, with the full support of his family – but NO support from his school.  Milan was bullied so badly that he missed more than a year of classes. And the whole thing started up again this spring when he was bullied again.  Milan was out of school for nearly 8 weeks. Even though the school system has completely failed Milan, and even though he missed almost two months of school this semester, he has still finished his year with flying colours.

There is a video about Milan called Handsome and Majestic.  The video has won prizes at film fests already, was shown on a gigantic screen over the street during Toronto Pride, and will be shown again at the Vancouver Film Festival. Milan has given talks to professionals, led the Prince George Pride Parade, gotten the Phoenix award from PG Pride, and served as a wonderful public role model for other trans kids, especially in Prince George.
