Little Miss Westie

A film by Joy E. Reed and Dan Hunt

A loving and insightful portrait of two transgender siblings — Luca and Ren — and their parents, set in the changing social climate during the Trump presidency. Little Miss Westie takes audiences behind the scenes as the family navigates puberty, school, dating and more as the children begin living in their authentic genders and Ren participates in the Lil’ Miss Westie Pageant.
