On a recent Sunday in the Salaverry household in Montevideo, various members of Uruguayan transgender teenager Sebastian’s family gathered for a traditional “asado,” or barbecue. The family sat around the large kitchen table, looking at photos of a young Sebastian and his older brother Ignacio. Sebastian, who at 18 sports the shadow of a beard, holds up one photo of himself as a baby in a white dress, and laughs loudly at something his girlfriend says. “Emotionally, he is happy, he is glowing,” his mother Carla Mijares, 43, told AFP. “I see him glowing, happy, and I share in his happiness.”
