||Synopsis: Based on a true story. As a young boy, Eddie Araujo always felt different somehow. She started putting on her mom's makeup and wearing her mom's clothes, which her mom found odd. By the time she entered her teen years, Eddie could no longer hide the fact that she was a lot different, that she was meant to be female and not male. When she finally accepted it and with her mom's eventual support, Eddie changed her name to Gwen and started to live life as female until a tragic night changed everything. Written by r2k443

Watch A Girl Like Me: The Gwen Araujo Story - Alternative Versions.
Gwen Araujo was born some twenty years ago as a biological male and
raised with a brother and sister in a single parent household.
It was apparent as shown in the film that Eddie as he was known then
was feeling that the anatomy given at birth was not matching what was
felt inside. In the teen years, Eddie took the name of Gwen to show her
real persona and that was what she presented to the world.
If the Gwen Araujo Story has a weakness it's that their are no really
developed secondary characters in the film. It is dominated completely
by Mercedes Ruehl as Gwen's mom and J.D. Pardo as Gwen.
But these are two very powerful performances indeed. Ruehl is a loving,
caring mother whose own life experiences have left her ill equipped to
comprehend what her child is dealing with. As for Gwen, she's an
innocent adolescent, but a brave one. Not comprehending why she's the
object of such hate and ridicule, but determined to present herself to
the world as she sees herself. Pardo does a great job in capturing both
parts of Gwen's character.
Had this been done for the big screen we might have gotten a more well
rounded film, but as a made for TV film this is definitely one of the
better ones. Hopefully a couple of Emmys might be in the future for
both Ruehl and Pardo.
It is also to be hoped that this film will educate and enlighten the
public about transgender teens and what they face in their daily lives.
