A Self-Made Man
directed by Lori Petchers
Transgender activist Tony Ferraiolo is a mentor for young people seeking guidance during transitional times in their lives, as they confront their gender identities and face coming-of-age experiences. “Create yourself,” he exhorts his charges through workshops and discussions, encouraging others to share what they’ve learned with people who don’t have access to information about transgender issues. Tony also focuses on environmental factors at home that could be causing distress, and works with parents to advance their understanding and awareness of their child’s transition. Tony mentors with candor and compassion as he navigates his own journey toward becoming A SELF-MADE MAN.
This is a free event co-presented by Gender Diversity.
Run time: 56 min.
