California Whittington family shares story of 5-year-old's transition from girl to boy

SAN DIEGO - Two San Diegans are sharing the story of their transgender son who became a boy at just 5 years old.

Jeff and Hillary Whittington were honored at the Harvey Milk Diversity Breakfast last week and they shared a video of Ryland's female-to-male transition.

The video includes how Ryland declared she was a boy after a hearing implant and learning how to talk.

His parents embraced the identity -- they cut off his hair, bought new clothes and started referring to Ryland as male.
