Warren Beatty's son is all grown up and is an activist for the transgender community
Warren Beatty is an actor known for his roles in films such as “Bonnie and Clyde” and “Heaven Can Wait.” However, his biological daughter's transition into a man is more relevant for current times.
Warren Beatty and his wife Annette Bening had one son and three daughters, but one of their daughters felt that they were born into the wrong body and identified as male.
Kathlyn Elizabeth already identified as transitioned into a male at age 14, but only legally changed their name to Stephen Ira years later.

Stephen has a growing Instagram presence and is a transgender activist. At 22 years old he has already had to endure bullying, abuse, and conversion therapy.
His aspirations include becoming a poet, English teacher, and helping those who are still transitioning or even just thinking about making the transition.
When Stephen talks about those, who supported him during his transition he talks about his friends but does not mention his parents. This is no surprise considering the fact that Warren did not discuss the matter publicly for years.
In a 2016 interview, the actor was asked what he thought about his daughter’s transition into a man, and he replied by referring to his son as a hero, which shows growth on the part of Warren. This is the first time he had spoken about it.
I survived conversion therapy and transphobic abuse. I'm 22 and I live in New York City and I just put on my androgel. #RealLiveTransAdult— Stephen Ira (@supermattachine) December 30, 2014
Besides having a transgender child and being an award-winning actor, there is a lot about Warren Beatty that most people don’t know. For example, Warren is his middle name.
He was born in Virginia and is not the only famous person in his family. His sister is actress Shirley MacLaine.
He has dated many well-known women such as Madonna, Julie Christie, Carly Simon, and Jane Fonda. He is even partially the subject of Carly’s song “You’re So Vain.”
