The transgender son of Warren Beatty and Annette Bening has created a public service announcement to protest New York state’s Medicaid regulation that bans transgender people from getting health care.

According to the New York Daily News, Stephen Ira Beatty, 21, doesn’t identify himself as being the son of the two famous actors. “I identify as a trans-man, a f***ing queen, a homosexual, a queer, a nerd, fighter, writer, an artist and a guy who needs a haircut,” he said into the camera. “Many trans people… don’t have the basic health care coverage we need to survive.” The fact that even covering birth control is somehow controversial means that he and others will be fighting an uphill battle.
