A four-year-old child born a female officially announced his transition to being a boy with a blue gender reveal cannon at Vancouver’s Pride Parade – with his grandmother by his side.
Charlie Danger Lloyd, of British Columbia, Canada, was born female but now identifies as a male after expressing his desire to be a different gender from a young age, his mother Alaina Bourrel, 27, confirmed.
Video shared on social media shows the moment when Charlie, who uses he/him pronouns, pops a confetti canon with blue smoke coming out of it to celebrate his decision in July.
‘Once they closed the road, Charlie strutted out with Grammy and they faced the sidelines and after a short struggle, the cannon exploded with blue smoke and biodegradable confetti,’ the four-year-old’s mother, Alaina told the South West News Service.
‘Charlie jumped with joy as the crowd cheered him on. He couldn’t believe the love and support he was shown from the bystanders.’ Charlie ecstatically runs into his mother’s arms at the end of the video.
