Wren Kauffman, 11, and his family are embarking on a unique journey — he's living fully as a boy, and coming out in public, after being assigned as a girl with the name Wrenna.

Wren is attending grade seven this year at the Victoria School of the Arts in Edmonton and his transition is known to his teachers, most of his classmates and friends.

“I never really felt like girl,” Wren told Anna-Maria Tremonte on The Current. “I think now, I’m much happier as a boy …. I remember I just like really being a boy in playing with [my sister] Avy. I always wanted to cut my hair short like some of my guy friends.”
