When Family, Religion and Sexuality Collide

First-time filmmaker Cecilia Aldarondo’s “Memories of a Penitent Heart” is many things. It’s a love story and a family history. It’s an investigative report and a warning.

Real Boy pbs rewire

Life Lessons Learned from a ‘Real Boy’

June is unofficially Pride Month in the U.S., a celebration of the LGBTQ community. General acceptance of the community has increased in recent years, but not for everyone. Several states have written and/or passed laws banning transgender people from going to the bathroom that matches their gender identity, and advocates have seen an increase in the number of transgender people being killed in recent years.Despite this, many people have strived to become better allies to the transgender community, and more transgender people are making their presence known in media. A recent example of this is 19-year-old Bennett Wallace, the star of the Independent Lens documentary “Real Boy.”[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_lynBiuvI0]Bennett’s story is that of sadness, love, hope, and acceptance. The doc starts with excerpts from two videos – a home video from a six-year-old Bennett (who’s birth name is Rachael), and a YouTube video from 19-year-old Ben.
