Additional Info

"Pink Boy” is an intimate, 15-minute verité documentary about a gender non-conforming boy growing up in a conservative area of rural Florida. Six-year old Jeffrey likes nothing better than to put on a gown and dance for his butch lesbian moms - who are shocked that he was not the son they expected. As Jeffrey increasingly wishes to dress up in public, his parents must learn to accept and to navigate where it is safe for him to be himself in an often hostile environment.


Director/editor Eric Rockey's work straddles the worlds of technology and film. A Microsoft veteran, now at tech startup FiftyThree, he graduated from the New School’s Documentary Certificate and Media Studies MA programs. His first short, “Vulture Culture”, premiered at DOC NYC in 2011. He was also the designer and developer for interactive doc and Webby Award Honoree, “What Killed Kevin?” directed by Beverly Peterson in 2014. “Pink Boy” is his second short.
