            10pm broadcast – also available for viewing online for a limited time
            A moving and intimate story of a family in transition, Real Boy follows the journey of trans teen Bennett as he navigates adolescence, sobriety, and the physical and emotional ramifications of his changing gender identity. Through the process, his mother Suzy makes her own transformation – travelling a difficult road toward accepting that the daughter she raised as Rachael is now her son Bennett.
            Filmed over the course of four years, Real Boy is a love story about a mother and son who rediscover connection with each other and find support from their communities, reminding us that families are not only given, but chosen.
            Through observational storytelling that is alternately heartbreaking and humorous, Real Boy offers a clear-eyed look at a family tested by a change they never imagined, the complexity of addiction, the healing power of music, and the unbreakable bond between mother and child.

We’re looking at a 2pm kickoff on Saturday, June 24 (Pride Weekend).
            We are honored to welcome back Seattle Drag Personality, the incomparable Aleksa Manila as our announcer and referee; she will be working the crowd to sell penalties, changes of possession, tries (similar to a touchdown) and everyone’s favorite, COSTUME CHANGES! Proceeds from this year’s Prom Dress Rugby will go to benefit Gay City! Seattle's LGBTQ Center promotes wellness in LGBTQ communities by providing health services, connecting people to resources, fostering arts, and building community. Gay City is the leading provider of HIV and STI testing in King County.
            Why Prom Dress Rugby? Because the members of the Emerald City Mudhens will be suiting up and Seattle Quake RFC will be wearing dresses. Due to the limitations – and the overall fun nature of this exhibition match, we will not be playing full tackle rugby, but will be playing “light wrap” or “team tackle”. Rugby League rather than Rugby Union.

            Since 1994, every year on Pride weekend the Dyke March has gathered thousands of supporters at the corner of Broadway and Pine, fighting for the visibility, inclusion, and survival of queer women in Seattle and around the world.         The voices of the LGBTQ community and Pride weekend events have always been overwhelmingly male, and so we reserve our stage to shine a spotlight on the experiences, pleasures, activism, and identities of queer women and dyke-identified people across the gender spectrum. The Seattle Dyke March is not a parade; it is a solidarity demonstration in support of dyke voices and experiences, and focuses on our community’s wants, needs, and demands.          www.seattledykemarch.com
