BORN THIS WAY: AWA’S STORY 

Te Awarangi ‘Awa’ is an 18-year-old, openly transgender teen from Wellington who is transitioning from male to female. 

She’s also a year 13 student, a filmmaker and a daughter, sister and friend to many. 

In this SUNDAY documentary, Awa shows us—in unique and surprising ways—her own process of growing up transgender, the implications of being LGBTQI+ and her journey to acceptance and becoming her authentic self, both inside and out.

It’s an intimate and powerful insight. 

A SUNDAY special.
