An hour-long excerpt of the film
, produced by award-winning producer and host Katie Couric, will be shown followed by discussion with a
distinguished panel. The film explores the rapidly evolving complexities of gender identity, gender expression and sexual orientation.

We also learn from sex and gender experts, trans men and women and college students whose identities go beyond binary gender roles.
