Anneke is 12. She loves ice hockey and has a loving, close-knit family. She's also a hardcore tomboy. Everybody who meets her assumes she's a boy. That makes puberty even harder for her than most girls. Anneke's not sure if she wants to be a girl, a boy, or something in-between when she grows up. To give her more time to decide, her doctor has put her on a medication that will suppress the hormones that are causing her body to change before she's ready. Even though she's been rejected by her friends and struggles with depression and suicidal thoughts, Anneke is determined to be her true self. To do that she's decided to maintain a fluid gender identity--she wants to make sure her insides matches her outsides. "I'm Just Anneke" looks into the heart of a new generation of children who don't always fit into a binary conception of gender. I'm Just Anneke is one of four films in the Youth & Gender Media Project, which together demonstrate how to reach every member of a school community--students, teachers, parents and administrators--to help them create educational settings that welcome all young people, regardless of the where they fall on the spectrum of gender identity and expression.
