Asexual:A Love Story

15 min | Directed by Melinda Friedman | PG

According to some studies, around one out of every hundred Canadian identifies as asexual. But what does that term even mean? To some, it’s the absence of interest in all sexual activities. For some, it’s the lack of sexual interest in others. To most, it’s different than celibacy. To nearly all, it’s a little-known area of human identity that few people have much understanding of. 

Directed by Shaleece Haas

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.
