Film looks at transgender lives

The Gay Alliance of the Genesee Valley is promoting a showing of "Just Gender," a documentary film about the transgender experience, at 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 5. The film was directed by Rochester native George Zuber and narrated by Bebe Neuwirth.

The film will be shown at the Little Theatre, 240 East Avenue.

Spaull will discuss her experiences with Rochester's youth, their struggles, and how to help them get back on the right path. The event will be held at Nazareth College's Shults Center.
