"In these tender and difficult moments, She’s a Boy I Knew forces us to question our own assumptions about the role that names, clothing, and anatomy play in our constructions of gender identity.”
-Outcast Films

“Using archival family footage, interviews, phone messages, and hand-drawn animation, Haworth's documentary begins in 2000 with Steven Haworth's decision to come out to his family about his life-long female gender identity. The resulting auto-ethnography is… an emotionally charged account of the individual experiences, struggles, and stakes that her two sisters, mother, father, best friend and wife brought to Gwen's transition." -Outcast Films
