Making Curriculum Pop

This looks like a thoughtful exploration of complex issue done told in a school friendly narrative. I'm excited to see the whole film.

Here is the film's official site.I read about it HERE. An excerpt from the subject's daughter...
Earlier this year, Shattuck released a feature-length documentary about how her parents’ marriage—and her family—survived her father coming out as a transgender woman.

In her small hometown, Shattuck had little control over her own personal history. She and her family were just too visible in the community, and everyone knew and noticed that her dad wore women’s clothing. When Shattuck was in third grade, her dad, Michael, legally changed names to Trisha. Trisha presents as relatively gender neutral, but she prefers female pronouns and likes to wear makeup and a dress.

For most of her life, Shattuck wanted nothing more than to escape her family’s open secret. “She would literally walk around singing in the supermarket,” Shattuck says about Trisha, “and that was mortifying. It wasn’t just about having a transgender dad—it was about having a person who was hamming it up for the entire town.

“I think for a lot of kids of LGBT parents, you’re just as much in the closet until you start coming out about your parents,” she says in the film.
