Editor’s note: Protecting his identity

May 20, 2012

The Washington Post took a number of steps to protect the identity of Tyler and his family, including not publishing details about where they live and go to church and school in the Washington area. We used only the middle names of Tyler’s parents and sister. His name in the story is the one his parents would have given him if he’d been born a boy. We are publishing photos of Tyler with his parents’ permission.
