"Transmormon": Mormon Family Embraces Their Transgender Daughter

The following documentary by Torben Bernhard focuses on Eri Hayward, born as a boy, and her path toward becoming a transgender woman. It depicts her relationship with her supportive parents and the challenges she faces within her conservative Mormon community in Utah. "Being LDS was our life," she says. "It's one of the reasons I didn't find out about what being trans was until I was an adult." Eri's father states, "I'm hoping that this documentary that you're shooting will be watched by some parents. Maybe something we've said will help them—and through helping them, help their children."
