“Pink Boy” is an award-winning, intimate 15-minute portrait of a gender-creative boy growing up in conservative rural Florida. Butch lesbian BJ successfully avoided dresses her entire life until she and her partner Sherrie adopted Jeffrey, who to their shock, starts to dance in gowns and perform for his parents. As six-year-old Jeffrey increasingly wishes to dress up in public, BJ must navigate where it is safe for him, from school to a rodeo in Georgia to the ultimate holiday for a pink boy, Halloween. It is a story of love between a butch mother and her feminine son, in one sense opposites, but united by a determination to be who they truly are.
