A TRANSGENDER TWEEN COMES OF AGE AND REACHES FOR HER DREAMS IN THE CITY OF ANGELS.
Tate is a tween living in west Los Angeles who spends weekdays at school with her friends, and weekends passing a volleyball back and forth on the beach with her mom, dad and younger brother. She looks up to her college-age older sisters, and has a seemingly idyllic world where family, teachers, coaches and others in her community encourage her to follow her dreams.
But Tate’s original birth certificate says she’s a boy.
At the age of four, she told her mom she felt like a girl. In her heart of hearts, she knows she is a girl. Beyond the exploration of Tate as a young transgender person, Trans-mission.love reveals the life of a family dealing with the ups and downs of raising a transgender child. As Tate grows up and heads to middle school, she faces new challenges like hormone therapies, dating, and what she wants to reveal about her identity as she prepares to navigate her teenage years.
