Director Statement

The title of the film is a combination of the words “Gender” and “Diary,” I would like to take this opportunity to become a medium for the three subjects by telling their unheard stories like a diary. My main goal is to give the correct information to the audience about transgender. It will give the audience insights into their struggles by being themselves before their family accepts and support them.
