Lunchtime Shorts: Gender & Family

Fri 08 Feb 2019, 13:30
One Angel Square Auditorium
This programme of short films tells 3 very different experiences of transgender family life

How does coming out as transgender, or introducing a transgender partner, affect our relationship with our family? How does is alter our role as a parent, a daughter, a son? These three films take very different approaches to the subject of gender and family, from a moving exploration of motherhood to a touching tale of family reunion and a bittersweet comedy of manners. At a time when transgender rights remain a major talking point, these stories remind us that away from the headlines, real life is often most importantly about the ones we love.
