Film screening

How does it feel when your mom prays every day for you to be someone else? That’s the struggle faced by Johanna, a 16-year-old, transgender Latina. Becoming Johanna is a compelling story that follows the struggles transgender teens face every day. In the end, Johanna refuses to let her mother’s rejection define her life and she continues the journey toward becoming comfortable in her own skin. She finds mentors and a family-of-choice who love and support her and enable her to thrive. Johanna’s story is as beautiful as she is, and will leave you hopeful that we can build communities that accept all of our children just the way they are. Followed by discussion led by students Jen Hunt and Nick Creel. Snacks provided, and all are welcome.
