A Girl Like Me

For those who are looking at the above picture, the top one is Gwen, the bottom is her mom. Below the post you will see Gwen when she is dressed up.

A Girl Like Me: The Gwen Araujo Story

Description: Based on a true story. As a young boy, Eddie Araujo always felt different somehow. She started putting on her mom's makeup and wearing her mom's clothes, which her mom found odd. By the time she entered her teen years, Eddie could no longer hide the fact that she was a lot different, that she was meant to be female and not male. When she finally accepted it and with her mom's eventual support, Eddie changed her name to Gwen and started to live life as female until a tragic night changed everything.


From Me: This is an amazing, true story of how fear of what we are or the possibilities has lead to tragic things. Just because we aren't like others, doesn't mean we should be scared. I think this movie is great to show to anyone because the story isn't about a gay boy, toward transgenders, or toward anyone in particular it's toward everyone about accepting people for who they are as a person.
