I recently had the pleasure of watching Real Boy, a documentary about one transman's journey. A central feature of this film is Bennett's relationship with his family, and his mother in particular. In watching this film, I came away with some key lessons for parents that link to what research tells us leads to better outcomes for trans youth that I want to share with you here.
Real Boy premieres on Independent Lens Monday, June 19 at 10/9c (check local listings) on PBS. I am participating in an online discussion tonight (5/23) with the film's director that you can join in by registering here.
The post film Q&A will feature:
