“My name is Stephen. I identify as a trans man, a f*ggy queen, a homosexual, a queer, a nerd fighter, a writer, an artist and a guy who needs a haircut.”
This is fascinating.
It’s a video of 20-year-old Stephen Beatty, who is the son of Warren Beatty and Annette Bening. They also have two daughters, Isabel and Ella, and a son Ben.
Stephen identifies as transgender and gay – he was born a female named Kathlyn Elizabeth and decided to switch genders in 2009.
In the video, Stephen – who is an activist for the transgender community – talks about his transition and who has been most supportive. But there’s no mention of his parents.

This from the UK press:
It’s no secret in Hollywood that Warren Beatty and Annette Bening had a hard time accepting the transitioning of their eldest daughter to a boy.
It’s a story which appears further confirmed by a recent video in which their son Stephen Ira Beatty, born Kathryn Elizabeth Beatty, lists the people who have been most supportive of his gender switch.
‘My friends, my peers who I’m lucky to have relationships with a lot of, ever since high school, when I came out and transitioned socially when I was 14 or so,’ says Stephen, who appears to be standing in his college dorm room.
The eldest of Hollywood power couple Beatty and Bening, Stephen is a sophomore student at the prestigious Sarah Lawrence College in New York.
