Human Rights Speakers Series: “Real Boy”

  • City Council Chamber 625 North San Vicente Boulevard West Hollywood, CA, 90069 United States (map)

“Real Boy” is an intimate story of a family in transition. As 19-year-old Bennett Wallace navigates sobriety, 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. Light refreshments will be offered before the screening and panel discussion featuring filmmaker Shaleece Haas will follow.

Free Admission.
