Won the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Movie for Television A Girl Like Me is the true story of Gwen Araujo, born Eddie, who begins to dress and act as a girl as a teenager.
Defying the family's traditional Latino heritage, this teen insists on wearing makeup, growing long hair and eventually adopting the name Gwen, after her idol, singer Gwen Stefani.
When Gwen's transgender status is discovered by four young men at a local party, they savagely beat and kill her. The shocking and senseless murder shakes the community, and Gwen's mother, Sylvia Guerrero, dedicates her life to bringing her daughter's murderers to justice and advocating for the rights of all transgender people.
