My Queerceañera

17 mins


Karyna is a transgender woman who could never be who she wanted to be growing up for fear of hurting her family. Now, at age 50, she throws herself a quinceañera, the customary rite of passage popular across Latin America for girls turning 15 years old to mark their transition to womanhood. Clad in a beautiful ballgown, with the support of her siblings as they slowly learn to accept her, Karyna’s quinceañera is the celebration of gratitude and fulfillment of girlhood dreams she has always wanted.
