Deep Run shown at Virginia Historical Society

Local airing funded by Diversity Richmond

“Deep Run,” a documentary about a young transgender man growing up in rural North Carolina aired recently at the Virginia Historical Society. His struggles with his faith, his family and community were truthfully and oftentimes painfully presented as the cameras followed Cole throughout a partial clip of his life journey. The movie was produced by Susan Sarandon and filmed in 2015.

Following the movie, a conversation was led by local transgender activist Alexander Chapman and Diversity’s Bill Harrison. The airing of “Deep Run” was partially funded by Diversity Richmond, through the Virginia Historical Society/ Diversity Richmond Guy Kinman Scholarship.
