Cartoon Summary:

Meet the Haworth family. Dad was a high school quarterback who joined the RCMP in the '60s. Mom was a typical '50s Catholic schoolgirl. Older daughter Kim is an elementary school teacher and new mom. Younger daughter Nicole is a bicycle riding eco-queer vegan. Son Steven decided at the age of 23 that it was time to be honest with himself and those closest to him and he began the process of becoming Gwen. Malgosia, a native of Poland, is Steven's thoughtful and supportive ex-wife. And Roari is Steven/Gwen's best friend of 18 years and Gwen's most unwavering ally.

"She's a Boy I Knew" tells the story of Steven's transition and how that transition affects those closest to her. Filmmaker Gwen Haworth allows us to become a part of the inner circle of family and friends as they grapple with the changes that are happening and the feelings that arise along the way. What makes this film so refreshing is the thoughtfulness and self-examination of everyone involved. We're privy to complicated yet eloquently articulated feelings of anger, betrayal and fear as well as compassion, love and acceptance. These are smart, observant, self-aware people talking about the things that are hardest to talk about, yet doing so with incredible insight, grace and honesty.
