In I'm Genderqueer, we're
introduced to two young people who live outside the gender binary.
Jacob and Brennan both say they
identify neither as males nor females.
Jacob wears what he likes during the
day, but puts away the dress at home.
“Please stop,” Jacob's father says.
“Please tone it down.”
Meanwhile, Brennan's parents are having
a hard time accepting their genderqueer child.
“I could easily be a girl,” an
emotional Brennan tells his mother. “But that's not what I want.”
True Life, now in its 21st
season, has previously looked at marriage equality, coming out and
the murder of Matthew Shepard.
