All staff and students are invited to attend the film screenings GAYBY BABY and REAL BOY as part of Monash's International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT) celebrations. The two films explore this year's theme families.
Gayby Baby (2015)
Tue 16 May, 5pm
OSS Lounge, Second Floor
Building S, Caulfield Campus
Gayby Baby observes the lives of four children -- Gus, Ebony, Matt and Graham -- whose parents are either gay or lesbian, and explores the ways in which growing up as a gayby has affected them. You can view the trailer here.
Real Boy (2016)
Wed 17 May, 5pm
Cinema, Ground Floor
21 Chancellors Walk (Campus Centre), Clayton Campus
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. You can view the trailer here.
Please register to attend either/both films here. Light refreshments will be provided before each film. Please share this email within your networks. We encourage you to bring your friends, family and colleagues along. Could you please also promote amongst your relevant cohorts, as we would love to have a strong student presence at each film.
We hope that you can join us for one or both of these heartwarming films.
