It all began at a funeral in Ohio for transgender teenager Leelah Alcorn, whose death made headlines after her suicide note was found on Tumblr. A press reporter covering the story made a connection with a transgender girl in the crowd called Zay, and began to inform her story– among hope, love, and support.

In the short film by Meg Vogel for the Cincinnati Enquirer, “Raising Zay,” the transgender girl says, “I seemed like I was trapped in a cage a million miles away and there was no chance to obtain out.”

Gradually, her moms and dads understood their child’s interest in using dressing wasn’t a stage and began to research study transgender issues, eventually encountering a TEDx talk on pubertal suppression. When Zay’s parents informed her she might push time out on male puberty, it was a game changer.

” I seemed like someone came with an essential and opened the cage and stated you’re totally free to go,” she says.

Today, according to Zay’s mom, “She’s discovered her place, and she’s a flourishing, gorgeous girl now.”

The short movie won 2nd place in the brief kind category of the World Press Image Structure’s 2016 press photography contest. See the film below.
