This blog is about 135 drama movies with transgender characters that are my everyday inspirations. It is about characters whose stories radiate with wisdom, beauty, intelligence and love. It is about characters that proved to me that there is hope for me and it is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not.

"“Walk For Me” is a contemporary coming out story set in present day New York City. Hassan Kendricks is a conflicted teenager torn between his devotion to his single mother and his desire to be himself. When his mother, Andrea, finds women’s underwear and a flyer to a Gay Ball in her son’s bedroom, she decides to track Hassan down and confront him about his decisions. Arriving at the ball, Andrea only finds a shock: under the wing of his adoptive gay mother, Paris Continental, Hassan has assumed the identity of Hanna. Andrea is confronted by a choice — deny her own son or accept her child for who she really is."
