Frontline – An intimate look at the struggles and choices facing transgender kids and their families. 80 minute program followed by discussion
Growing Up Trans takes viewers on an intimate and eye-opening journey inside a new medical frontier. Meet transgender children and their families willing to share stories of the struggles and choices they faced as they considered transitioning.
Following the film’s showing, four adults will discuss it and answer questions: Paul Santos and Anne Stuart, Belmont parents of a transgender girl who transitioned to a boy; Lida Mullendore, who had previously been male; and Garrett Garbocauskas, who had previously been female. Patricia Garcia, chair of the Social Action Committee at First Church, will moderate.
