Not so very long ago, this sort of thing would have been unthinkable on mainstream American TV.

But here we are:

Ben and his father are the subject of the new ABC Family docuseries Becoming Us. From Ryan Seacrest Productions, Becoming Us centers on Ben, who watches as his dad Charlie divorces his mom and begins the gender transition into Carly, a woman. But the series will also focus on Ben’s girlfriend Danielle, whose father is also undergoing a gender transition. “I want to be able to provide guidance for kids who are going through it,” Ben told People. “Maybe this will help them being able to deal with it.”
