Shorts Program

All in the Trans Family

October 27, 2019 @ 6:30 pm

This program will also screen on Saturday, 10/26 at 1:45pm

Traversing the spectrum from absurdly honest to honestly absurd, this tonally varied shorts program focuses on the myriad of trans experiences as they relate to family, acceptance, and home. Good, bad, and weird family dynamics are on full display here. From trans parents trying to teach their children about gender identity to cis relatives overcoming their struggles to support their trans loved ones, ALL IN THE TRANS FAMILY is a boldly challenging yet inspiring ode to imperfect relatives and the outsized impact they can have.

Total Running Time: 92 min

Q&A to follow
