The film explores gender complexities in everyday life, from birth through old age. Journalist Katie Couric spoke with scientists, psychologists, activists, authors and families to explore the role of genetics, brain chemistry and modern culture on gender fluidity. Conversations range from the scientifically enlightening to the personal as she sheds light on untold stories of struggle, understanding, ignorance, hurt and love.

The film will be shown from 7-9 p.m. on April 20 at the Vogue, located at 383 River St. in downtown Manistee.

The screening runs for 90 minutes and will be followed by a moderated Q&A between the audience and the screening sponsor, PFLAG Manistee, the local chapter of the national nonprofit organization Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays. Content is appropriate for all adults and children 12 years and older.

The Manistee chapter of the national PFLAG nonprofit was founded in 2009 to promote the health and well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons and their families and friends through support, to cope with an adverse society; education, to enlighten an ill-informed public; and advocacy, to end discrimination and to secure equal civil rights.

The chapter meets the third Sunday of each month at 2 p.m. in the basement of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, 410 Second St. in Manistee. Find more information about PFLAG at PFLAGManistee.org.
