At the Child and Adolescent Gender Centre at UCSF Hospital, he meets youngsters who have been diagnosed with gender dysphoria and who are undergoing medical interventions, from puberty blockers to hormone-replacement therapy and ultimately gender-reassignment surgery.

Louis spends time with the clinic’s patients and their families as they negotiate their way along this life-changing and emotional journey.

Louis Theroux: Transgender Kids is scheduled for broadcast tonight (13 November) on BBC BRIT (DStv channel 120) at 21.02 with a repeat showing on Sunday 15 November at 00.05.
