Boulder Pridefest 2017

Schedule of the Week's Events Now Available!


Tuesday 9/5 (Facebook Event): You're invited to kick off Pride Week 2017 with Real Boy! Real Boy is an intimate story of a family in transition. As 19-year-old Bennett Wallace navigates early sobriety, late 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. 

A panel for Q&A will follow the screening.

This event is in partnership with the Dairy Arts Center.
