A 20 year-old transgender woman in Kyiv dreams of becoming a model. Social media creates a space for her to exist the way she chooses, but also to resist the loneliness that sometimes overwhelms her. Filmmaker Olena Siyatovska met Michelle during the creative residency program “Coming Out of Isolation 2.0” that examines the visibility of LGBTQ+ identities in Ukraine. Siyatovska accompanies Michelle back to her hometown as she reconnects with those who accept her and glimpses what she truly wants. Myrocia Watamaniuk
