In My Mother's Closet: Welcome

Through song, a young woman reconciles the struggle of wanting to belt out her truth while not wanting to risk her relationship with her religious mother. With the support of her best friend, she perseveres. 

IN MY MOTHER'S CLOSET explores the intersections of being brown, trans, and a woman.
