"This is My Journey" explores the emotional aspects of transitioning for three transgender people living in Central Illinois.

While they couldn't be more different, the three people find common ground as they struggle to find acceptance with spouses, family, children, and friends, as well as learn to accept themselves.

Dana, Shayla, and Cris open up their lives to show how their everyday struggles as so strikingly similar, yet so different, from those of the everyday person.

"This is My Journey" was produced, directed, shot, written, and edited by Kate Brickman.
Associate Producer and Advisor: Prof. Nancy Benson of the Department of Journalism at the University of Illinois
