I'm Not Les - documentary on PBS

6 posts in this topic

This program is in PBS on Monday. I am guessing it would be on across the states on PBS stations but not I'm not sure.

You can watch the entire documentary online via their website. It's 25 minutes long.

Imagine feeling invisible to the world—looking in the mirror and not recognizing the face looking back. Some people don't have the problem of trying to figure out exactly who they are. But for others, gender identity isn't as easy to define as the body you were born into.

Wow! Thank you for posting this link. I just watched the documentary "I'm not Les" and it was an eye opener. It must have been really hard for Sherrie to be the woman she is and I admire her strength and the courage it took her to do what she did. There were also some very good links on the page that I followed. They made me feel much more comfortable in taking this journey. I know I truly am not alone.

I admire her strength too. To go ahead and face obstacles and rejection, lose her job but ultimately live her life being her true self. It's nice to see the group of folks she goes dancing with accept her too.

Thank you Krisina. It was a very nice documentary. Sherrie is such a strong person. I am glad they showed the good with the bad but mostly made her a person with good and bad memories and emotions and feelings just like the rest of us.

For a person to decide that they can't live that way, and must be true to themselves, are not only being honest and truthful to the world, but are true heroines (or heroes) in the face of rejection and plain bigotry.
