Austin. He wants to be the type of woman his mother was. Co-created by Rosie Haber (Director) and Lauren Cioffi (Producer) in collaboration with The Front, New Deep South is a series that ventures into the lives of queer youth to explore the tangled and complex nature of sexual identity, family, race and digital culture in the 21st-century American South.
Our second episode is about Austin. He wants to be the type of woman his mother was. The type to mow the lawn in heels. But he lives in a tiny town in the Mississippi delta and has never met a transperson in his life. Will he be able to walk his graduation stage in heels?
