Guest for the Q&A:
How can parents deal with their child coming out as trans*? The documentary "My Name is Violeta" tells the inspiring story of an 11-year-old girl who was born a boy. Even as a toddler, her parents suspected that Violeta might be trans* because she referred to and dressed as a girl as a matter of course. After the initial astonishment, the couple made the decision: Despite all obstacles, they support Violeta in the free development of her gender identity! Together, the family now faces legal and medical challenges. Violeta's story is never alone in the film - other members of the LGBTQIA+ community, activists, friends and family share their experiences, fears and hopes. They all want one thing: more acceptance, more education and a right to bodily self-determination.
