SQIFF Schools: Real Boy
September 27, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:45 pmFree
“I just want to be loved by my family,” says Bennett, a 19-year-old trans man. “But for my family, it’s not as simple as that.” Ben’s mum is having a hard time coming to terms with her child’s transition. His dad and sister no longer speak to him. But thanks to social media, Ben meets a whole network of people who support him, including best friend Dylan and Joe Stevens, a trans musician. With their support, Ben comes to terms with his identity and begins to build bridges with his family. Real Boy is raw and breathtakingly honest, creating a sense of awe at the resilience of its subjects.
The screening will be followed by a discussion on transgender issues led by young people from LGBT Youth Scotland, which is kindly supporting this event. Suitable for ages 12+.
