WATCH: One Woman's Song for Trans 'Grandkids' Will Blow You Away

YouTube Sheri Gray

She's straight, but that didn't stop Sherri Gray from writing and recording this amazing song for her transgender 'grandkids.'

Sherri Gray, a 75-year-old straight grandmother from Nashville, Tennessee, has penned a touching song about transgender people that will leave you reaching for the Kleenex. Gray is spending her retirement joining LGBT groups, baking cupcakes and spending time with her new "family."

"It feels like I've been given another chance at expanding my family," Gray told Gay Star News. "I love them all. It's so much fun. God's given me a brand new window open to the world to keep on having fun and doing good work in the world. I'm truly appreciative."

"Some people look at me, thinking, 'Who is this gal hanging about?'. But then they get to know me, how I'm making up cupcakes. I keep on coming back. They know I really do like them. It's wonderful."

While support for transgender rights is typically low among seniors, Gray wrote the song as her way of showing people who are transgender that not everyone her age is transphobic.

"They're born that way, and they have real feelings. A lot of the outside world is calling them freaks, but they're so courageous," she said. "That's the main thing I've learned, everyone is just a person doing the best they can."

"I love them. Every transgender person I have met has been just lovely."

Even Gray's description on YouTube is beautiful. She wrote, "For all my strng, Curageus, Wnderful Transgender Friends..."
