A new report in the journal Pediatrics says a growing number of teens and younger kids are experiencing gender identity disorder. They’re coming to doctors with an interest in changing their gender. 

Dr. Robert Garofalo is part of a team at Children's Memorial Hospital that's considering starting a clinic to serve these kids. He joins us on Chicago Tonight at 7:00 pm.
