Warren Beatty - Warren Beatty's Transgender Son Stars In New Healthcare Psa

Warren Beatty and Annette Bening's son is starring in a public service announcement (Psa) to speak out against new regulations excluding transgender people from receiving full healthcare.

Stephen Ira Beatty, who was born Kathleen Elizabeth Bening Beatty and embarked on hormone treatment to change sex in 2011, appears in the new commercial calling for a New York State Medicaid law to be repealed.

He says, "I grew up outside of New York, but I've known I've wanted move there for city's vibrant artistic community. As a trans person, I would hope that I'd be welcomed but many trans people aren't because we don't have the basic healthcare coverage we need to survive."

A representative from gay rights group Glaad, which organised the Psa, adds, "Transgender healthcare isn't special healthcare. It's regular healthcare that non-trans people receive every day when they need it. Unfortunately, healthcare is often denied to trans people due to misinformation and bias. By repealing the exclusionary regulation, (politicians) can ensure that transgender people receiving Medicaid have the same access to essential care as anyone else."
