A 4-year-old biological girl announced a "boy" identity at a Pride Parade in Canada recently as a cannon blasted blue confetti into the air and an adoring crowd cheered.

What are the details?

The New York Post — citing South West News Service — reported that Charlie Danger Lloyd "was assigned female at birth but from a young age expressed he was a boy, his mom said."

Video from the Vancouver Pride Parade shows Charlie dressed in a transgender flag cape alongside "Grammy," who was wearing a rainbow pride flag as a cape, in the middle of a street firing the blue confetti-filled cannon.

“Once they closed the road, Charlie strutted out with Grammy, and they faced the sidelines and after a short struggle, the cannon exploded with blue smoke and biodegradable confetti,” Charlie's mom, 27-year-old Alaina Bourrel, told SWNS, according to the Post.

“Charlie jumped with joy as the crowd cheered him on. He couldn’t believe the love and support he was shown from the bystanders," Bourrel added to SWNS, according to the Post.

Bourrel also told the outlet she's been attacked online by those who call her a “pedophile, groomer, and rapist” due to Charlie's transition, the Post reported.

But Bourrel noted to SWNS that Charlie began expressing different gender needs at the age of 2, constantly telling family about wanting to be “growing to look just like daddy” and “I’m a boy," the Post said.

Charlie's mother told the outlet the Pride Parade idea came after Charlie was told the family held a previous gender reveal prior to Charlie's birth — and the smoke didn’t work properly, the Post reported.

“When we told him the story, he asked for a re-do ... at the Vancouver Pride Parade — so we bought him a smoke cannon and tucked it away for this day,” Bourrel said, according to the paper.

'He wasn’t your typical little girl'

“He wasn’t your typical little girl. He would play with other boys and the parents would say he was more of a boy than their own children,” Bourrel recalled, the Post said, adding that by the end of 2021 Charlie didn’t want to shop in the girls' section and wanted short hair.

“He refused to shop in the girls' section but was too nervous to shop in the boys',” Charlie's mother added, according to the paper. “After lots of expressing his feelings and emotions with me, he decided that he wanted a new wardrobe, so we set out to find our new style.”

Charlie got a haircut "at Big Bros Barbershop, a trans-owned and operated salon in East Vancouver,” Bourell added, the Post said. “After leaving the salon that afternoon, Charlie was a completely new child.”

Bourell also told the outlet that family and friends have been supportive of Charlie: “His choices were not questioned, and he was congratulated and everyone began using new pronouns."
