It's true, Stephen is a dedicated gender identity activist and remains outspoken about issues within the transgender community. He is a great example to many young people who struggle with their own gender.

Annette's husband, Warren Beatty, is also very proud of their son and considers his transition a heroic act. As he told Vanity Fair in 2016:

He's a genius, and my hero, as are all my children.

Annette and Warren are such amazing parents, Stephen is very lucky!
