A Canadian father of two is leading the way in parenting after he threw his trans son a party to celebrate the start of his testosterone treatment.

Dave Scott went viral as his innocent emoji-laden tweets about party preparations captured the hearts of everyone on social media.

“So this month my 16yo son started testosterone,” he wrote. “Today he’s throwing a 1 yr T-Versary.

“My kitchen is full of teens playing ‘beer’ pong and having mock-tails, and we’ve got the chocolate fountain going. It’s a happy place. & I’m worn out with running errands all day.”

The story continued as the proud dad tweeted throughout the evening, cheerfully watching from the sidelines as the teens enjoyed homemade tacos and committed the curious “food crime” of onions in a chocolate fondue.

He included a message for other trans people watching: “Lots of love to everybody out there. Remember, you guys are valid no matter how you transition or what your journey entails. And sometimes you can’t transition, so stay safe everybody.”

The party ended with cupcake decorating – in trans flag colours of course – and Scott finally got to take a picture with his son. “We’re touched by the love shared here, in Twitterverse,” he wrote. “Love is Love, Trans Rights are Human Rights.”

Three cheers to Dave Scott for showing the world how easy it is to love and accept trans kids (although we think you could’ve skipped the chocolate onion part).
