Inside Chile’s Amaranta school for transgender children

A school believed to be the first in the world predominantly for transgender children and their siblings opened in Chile last year.

It is named after the Mexican transgender politician Amaranta Gómez Regalado, and caters for children aged between 6 and 17.

Many of the students dropped out of their previous schools once they began to transition.

They learn traditional subjects like math, science, history, English and art and take part in state exams.
