Film Screening: Real Boy May 23

Join us at Changing Hands Bookstore in Phoenix on Tuesday, May 23 at 6:30 as Project Humanities hosts a critical discussion on the issues raised in the documentary “Real Boy.”

Real Boy is an intimate story of a family in transition. As 19-year-old Bennett Wallace navigates early sobriety, late adolescence, and the evolution of his gender identity, his mother makes her own transformation from resistance to acceptance of her trans son. Along the way, both mother and son find support in their communities, reminding us that families are not only given, but chosen.

The film will be screened and followed by a short talkback from selected community respondents. Light snacks will be provided.
