“Hailey is a 17 year-old trans girl who goes to a music academy. At her school, her and her two friends, Lucas, the 17 year-old drummer with a head over heels crush on Hailey, and Willow, the punk bassist who would do anything for their best friend, are in a band called Alter Ego.

They were practicing day and night for Battle of the Bands until a transphobic parent got upset that a trans girl was going to represent the school at Battle of the Bands. The music coordinator pulled their group, but Alter Ego is determined to compete no matter what.”

Read Alter Ego, inspired by one of our It Gets Better Youth Voices Hailey, by Jennifer Castaneda, Isa Stagliano, and Kenley Lundy  – created as part of our partnership with Otis College of Art and Design
