Trans Day of Visibility: Room to Grow

Directed by Matt Alber, Jon Garcia • 1h 27m • English • United States • Documentary

Room to Grow, the Revry Original Film, chronicles the lives and stories of seven LGBTQ+ teens and families in cities across the country, offering an up-close and intimate glimpse into their daily lives as they endeavor to find an identity that fits and a place in their communities. Kids grow up fast, and it’s amazing how much these teenagers changed over the 12 months of filming. Room to Grow highlights just how important it is for LGBTQ+ teenagers to receive the support they need at home, at school, at church, and in the world to reach their full potential.

This event is proud to be co-presented by: Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition (MTPC)

Shala is the story about Pedro, a young boy living in an orphanage in Amazon who has a hard time being adopted because of several prejudices, which includes the cruel indifference of adoptive parents towards children in his age group. The boy creates situations to draw the attention of adoptive parents, while at the same time creating an imaginary friendship with his only toy, a doll named “Shala.”
