That{u2019}s the struggle Johanna, a 16 year old transgender Latina faces. At first her mom thinks she{u2019}s confused, or joking, but as Johanna{u2019}s transformation continues, her mom simply can{u2019}t handle the fact that her son is Becoming Johanna...After prayer doesn{u2019}t change anything, Johanna{u2019}s mom tries therapists and a mental hospital in her quest to "fix"her daughters gender identity. While she was born a boy, Johanna is a young woman on the inside and nothing but living a lie can change that...Becoming Johanna is a compelling story that follows the struggles transgender teens face every day. In the end, Johanna refuses to let her mother{u2019}s rejection define her life and she continues the journey toward becoming comfortable in her own skin.
