Academy Award-winning actor Warren Beatty has called his transgender son his ‘hero’.
The Bonnie and Clyde star has opened about his love for his son in a Vanity Fair interview.
This is the first time Beatty has publicly commented on his son’s gender identity.
Of Stephen, he simply said: ‘He’s a revolutionary, a genius and my hero’.
The 24-year-old came out in a video for WeHappyTrans.com.
‘My name is Stephen,’ he said. ‘I identify as a trans man, a faggy queen, a homosexual, a queer, a nerd fighter, a writer, an artist and a guy who needs a haircut.’
He said he socially transitioned when he was 14, and said he was thankful for all his friends who have supported him.
