New Release! GIRL INSIDE
Insightful Portrait of Trans Experience
========================================

Following Madison during three years of her transition from male to
female, heartwarming GIRL INSIDE by Maya Gallus delves well beyond
"Trans 101" basics.

What makesMadison's story unique stems from herloving relationship
with her glamorous 80-year-old grandmother. Together, they discuss
profound issues about the nature of gender, femininity and sexuality.
And, accompanying her on her gender metamorphosis is Madison's rural
New Brunswick family who go through their own transformation as they
struggle to accept - with surprisinggrace -that they now have a
daughter instead of a son, a sister instead of a brother.

Sometimes funny, sometimes painful, this sweet coming of age story is
both a portrait and an exploration of what it means to be a woman.
