Lulu's proud mom

 

Lulu has openly identified as female since the age of four, and now at six, she has her paperwork in her corner. Her native Argentina passed a law last year allowing legal documents to reflect preferred gender pronouns without doctor and judge approval, and she is the first Argentinian minor to have changed her legal gender identity from "male" to “female.” 

 

Her birth certificate bears the name “Luana” because she has gone by Lulu ever since she was capable of expressing her identification with the name. Her mother is thrilled and moved, and she thanks all those who “trusted the identity of [her] daughter” and “respected her rights.” Congrats, Lulu!
