Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls
Written by Dave Deveau
Follow the story of nine-year-old Fiona who comes out as a boy and wants to be called Fin. He has always had a feeling – knowing something was different but not knowing what it was exactly or how to say it.
As Fin cuts his hair short and changes his name, his family works to understand and adjust to Fin’s gender identity. Dad accepts the change right away, but Mom struggles at first. We see Fin’s family grapple with his transition with the best of intentions. Throughout the course of Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, we see how they ultimately begin to understand and embrace Fin for who he really is.
