Sergio Ingato ’15, Mason Sklut ’14 and Maggie Sloane ’14 co-produced the film “BrocKINGton,” which premiered Sept. 13 at the Austin Gay and Lesbian International Film Festival.

The 8-minute short film explores the life of transgender student Blake Brockington, who was named homecoming king at his high school in Charlotte, North Carolina. Brockington discusses his experiences, both positive and negative, regarding growing up with a transgender identity in the culture of the South.

The Austin Gay and Lesbian International Film festival showcases films that address controversial issues like culture, race, sexual identity, immigration and religion.
