What Would You Do?

ABC News found a surprising result to their hidden camera experiment about a trans* teen.

The American based network often run a segment in their nightly news service called What Would You Do? Actors are employed to play out a scene and hidden cameras film the responses of people nearby.

Last year the show set up a scenario where a waitress was rude to a family with same-sex parents, now the show has revisited GLBTI issues by presenting a trans* teenager coming out to his mother. Two actors role play a son telling his mother that he is trans* and the diners nearby react in a variety of diffferent ways.

The experiment got a surprising result though when some PFLAG parents were nearby.
