PRIDE Month 2021 Scheduled Showings

Tuesday 6/1 & Thursday 6/3:  "Be Like Others” (Running Time 58:55)

Directed by Tanaz Eshaghian

An intimate and unflinching look at life in Iran, seen through the lens of those living at its fringes, 'Be Like Others' is a provocative look at a generation of young Iranian men choosing to undergo sex change surgery.

Wednesday 6/2 & Friday 6/4:  “Growing Up Trans” | Frontline (Running Time: 1hr 23:18)
Directed by Miri Navasky and Karen O'Connor
Just a generation ago, it was adults, not kids, who changed genders. But today, many children are transitioning, too — with new medical options, and at younger and younger ages. In Growing Up Trans, FRONTLINE takes viewers on an intimate and eye-opening journey inside the struggles and choices facing transgender kids and their families.
