Truthful, heartbreaking spotlight on the violation of trans people and white American privilege
14 October 2020 | by iamshunajiSee all my reviews

This movie moved me, it saddened me. It is about a young, loving and kind trans woman escort in the Philippines and how an American military man brutally murdered her for being trans. This man has not been brought to justice and was protected by the American government, who clearly rewards murderers when trans people if colour are the ones losing their lives.

We await for justice to be done. Her mother's words made me cry. Justice for Ganda.
