The viral video, which racked up over 1.3 million views, showed his grandpa beaming while he updated the picture frame of a new photo of his grandson.

The transgender man began sharing his story shortly before he received his gender confirmation surgery.

Now, with over 10,000 followers, Nicolás frequently posts about what his surgery entailed.

The college student shares his story to his followers in an attempt to help those too afraid to come out and to help others in the trans community. 

In an interview with Newsweek, Nicolás said: ‘I posted this one specifically because a lot of trans youth are scared about what their family members will think or do when they come out, 

‘I was certainly worried about that too. I posted the video to show that it isn’t a generational issue — that being old isn’t an excuse to be unsupportive of family you are supposed to love.’

He further explained that his family, specifically his grandpa, were extremely supportive of his decision early on. 

He added that he expected his family to ‘mess up’ his pronouns or accidentally dead name him, which is when someone uses a person’s birth name, despite them having changed their name when they transitioned. 

To Nicolás’s surprise, his family and his grandfather never had any issues.

He added that his ‘abuelo’ has ‘never flinched once.’ 

And when his grandfather wanted to update his photo, the college student admitted he grinned from ear to ear, smiling like ‘an idiot.’ 

In the caption of the video, Nicolás dubbed him ‘grandpa of the year.’ 

‘He looks so happy,’ the grandson exclaimed while his grandfather added his new photo to the picture frame.

The video captured the hearts of TikTok users who flooded the comments section celebrating the relationship between the grandson and grandfather
