Last Queens' Vernacular screening of the year tonight at at the Pickford
The last Queens’ Vernacular screening of the year is taking place tomorrow at 6:30pm at Pickford Film Center. We’re collaborating with the Indie Lens Pop-Up series to present the 2016 documentary Real Boy, a positive story about a transgender teen.
Real Boy is the coming-of-age story of Bennett Wallace, a transgender teenager on a journey to find his voice—as a musician, a friend, a son, and a man. As he navigates the ups and downs of young adulthood, he works to gain the love and support of his mother, who has deep misgivings about her child’s transition. Along the way, Bennett forges a powerful friendship with his idol, Joe Stevens, a celebrated transgender musician with his own demons to fight.
The event is free and open to everyone.
