Transgender issue is real ! Apparently this is something that many Malaysian will not admit. This special breed, ought to be treated as a sex object, or even worse as sex jokes and social outcasts. Many boys who had the urge of becoming a girl, resisted it. Suganya begs to differ. She’s my son tells the story of Suganya from her mother’s point of view. “He” before the sex change, had the courage to face the reality and today as “she” stroll the road confidently, with her family and friends accepting the reality as she did.
“Dia Anakku” mengisahkan cerita seorang transgender dari kaca mata ibunya. Suganya berani berhadapan dengan realiti menukar jantinanya, dan kini keluarga dan kawannya menerima hakikat realiti juga.
