FTM film at QueerScreen

Boy I Am 7pm, Tuesday 20th Feb, at the Dendy Newtown:
'While female-to-male transgender visibility increases, conversations about trans issues in the lesbian community often run into significant resistance. This sophisticated documentary begins to break down that barrier. Boy I Am promotes incredibly rich dialogue through a look at the experiences of three young transitioning FTMs in New York City alongside the voices of lesbians, activists and theorists who address the questions about gender, identity and feminism few openly discuss. What emerges is the vital and oft neglected ways in which trans issues are inextricably linked to queer and feminist struggles. The interviews with leading gender and feminist theorist Judith Halberstam alone are worth the ticket price. '
