Presented by Whatcom Youth Pride and Queer Youth Project Skype Q&A with director Mikey B. and executive producer Alex Schmider on 10/25 Mack Beggs made headlines last year when he became the Texas State Champion in girls wrestling -- as a boy. Fighting Texas State policy and drawing international media coverage, he was heralded as a hero by some while receiving hate and threats from others. The tumultuous press surrounding his success continues to pull Mack in multiple directions as he and his family navigate the media and this year's State wrestling tournament, all while trying to graduate high school. We hear two other stories from trans high school atheletes, and these courageous kids offer us the opportunity to see their successes and struggles through their eyes.
