My son just came out as transgender

To start off, I want to say that I love my kids, no matter what. I was a lesbian for 9 years until I met my current partner who happens to be a male. My daughter came out to me a Pan. I’m waiting for my oldest son to come out. But that is not why I’m writing. My 17 year old son just came out to me as Transgender. I showed support and love within the very first second of him telling me. You could tell he was nervous, but I reassured him that I was going to love and support him no matter what he does. And I do. The thing is that with how dangerous it is for Transgender, Im terrified at the amount of discrimination he is going to receive. I’m dying inside knowing people could hurt him for him just trying to be who he wants to be. I’m so scared for him. He is wanting to do so many things professionally and it’s going to be so much more difficult. I have talked to him about it and he understands the risks. I’m just so scared for him. I will do anything to make sure that I am on his side. He will always have me in his corner. Any advice on this would be wonderful…
