Meet Alicia, the mother of her transgender daughter. She says when people find out about Dee, they ask how she has dealt with losing her son. For her, she never had a son. Instead, she was gaining her authentic child.

Her film is a part of the I Too Am Mississippi Storytelling Project, designed to elevate the voices, faces, and lives of Mississippi's transgender citizens. We hope that their stories help build a bridge between the sociological perceptions and the individually lived realities of trans Mississippians.
