A school in Brighton has 76 students, aged between 11 and 16, who identify as transgender.

 

According to a survey conducted at Dorothy Stringer School, 40 of those children said they do not identify with their birth sex, while 36 claimed they were ‘gender fluid.’

In the U.K., the number of children being referred to gender identity clinics quadrupled in the space of just five years. In 2012-13 there were 20 children aged between three and seven who were referred to gender clinics. By 2016 that number jumped to 84, while referrals for children under the age of 10 also increased from 35 in 2012-13 to a staggering 165 in 2016.

The Sandyford Clinic in Glasgow, Scotland witnessed a similar surge, reporting a 300 percent rise in referrals during that same period.

In Australia, figures obtained by The Daily Telegraph revealed as many as 74 children aged between 6 and 16 have been referred to gender dysphoria clinics this year. In contrast, there were 22 referrals in 2015, and just two in 2013.
