This is a transgender-transition film with a story of celebration, health and unconditional love. A much-needed portrayal of biracial trans and gender-nonconforming lives in America, this documentary chronicles the transition of a young adult and the empathetic response of his family. But Change in the Family is about so much more than the transition experience; it speaks to the complexity of young adulthood, being a person of color, having a biracial identity and coming out as trans and gender-nonconforming. Zo’s story provides hope for a time when portraying this type of experience is no longer so unusual.

After the film, please stay with us so you can ask questions of the panel in a live online chat.
