Guys, meet transgender teen Claire. She used to be a boy (pictured below) but now a woman and says she is rejected by straight guys for ‘having male parts’.
Appearing in a new BBC Three documentary, Young, Trans and Looking for Love, Claire allowed viewers see a glimpse of her life as she struggled to find love.
The doc video shows the moment Claire, from Virginia, meets a guy that she likes, only to be rejected by him as soon as he finds out she was born a boy.

Claire had gone to the beach in a bikini for the first time – having avoided the moment (and a bikini) since she transitioned to female nearly a year ago.
With the help of her friends, she builds up courage to speak to boys, saying:
“I’m excited as there are a lot of cute guys out there.”
“What kind of guys are you into?” the beach boys ask, as Claire replies about her ideal type, revealing “I like the guys who are really funny.”
Claire even asked the beach boys if she’s “cute”, the keen boys instantly reply with comments like “most definitely” and “gorgeous”.
One boy even asks: “We should hook up sometimes.”
Another says: “So I should put you in here [his phone] as ‘beautiful’?”
The boys, who were originally attracted to Claire, did not call after finding out that she is trans.

“That’s it, silence,” says Claire. “Like nothing from them again.”
Claire has also begun making social media diaries of her transition, sharing her experiences with transgender teens across the world.
Hoping on finding a boyfriend, she reveals that she doesn’t like telling people the truth and is desperate for an operation.

“In a lot of ways, I don’t like telling a guy. Once I tell him all respect goes out of the window. Straight guys just can’t get over you having the male parts.
“Once I’ve had or get the surgery, I think it will change a lot for me because right now if I meet a straight guy and he doesn’t know – we can’t get physical if I don’t tell him.
“And then if he finds out, things just get so complicated, I can’t even begin to explain.”
