The transgender man began sharing his story shortly before undergoing his gender confirmation surgery.

Now, with over 10,000 followers, Nicolás posts regularly about what his surgery entailed.

The student shares his story with his followers in an effort to help those who are too afraid to come out and help others in the trans community.

In an interview with News weekNicolás said: ‘I posted this one especially because many trans youth are afraid of what their relatives will think or do when they come out.

‘I was certainly concerned about that. I posted the video to show that it’s not a generational issue – that being old isn’t an excuse for not supporting the family you’re supposed to love.”

He went on to explain that his family, especially his grandfather, was very supportive of his decision early on.

He added that he expected his family to “mess up” his pronouns or accidentally call him dead, which is when someone uses a person’s birth name, despite having changed their name when they passed.

To Nicolás’s surprise, his family and his grandfather never had any problems.

He added that his ‘abuelo’ ‘never flinched once’.

And when his grandfather wanted to update his photo, the student admitted that he was grinning from ear to ear, smiling like “an idiot.”

In the caption of the video, Nicolás called him “grandfather of the year.”

“He looks so happy,” the grandson exclaimed as his grandfather added his new photo to the frame.
