In an adorable Q&A with his nan Elaine, trans YouTuber Gavin reveals how things went down when he came out to her - and who chose his name.

For a lot of LGBTQ+ folks, coming out can be a scary experience. But when you have a grandmother as supportive as trans YouTuber Gavin Cueto's nan, things can be a little easier.

Welsh vlogger Gavin has been using his channel to document his transition.

This includes a Q&A; with the first person he came out to, 83 year-old nan Elaine. It's clear from the video that these two have some great chemistry; which is probably why Gavin opened up to her first when he was just 11.

"You said 'I want to be a boy,'" tells Elaine. "So I said "Oh, don't we all? They've got a better life than us."

"She gave me a kiss and a hug and said 'I love you whoever you are,'" chimes in Gavin. "Then went back to bed, 'cause she was pissed!"
