I'm Just Anneke and The Family Journey, the first two short documentary films in the Youth and Gender Media Project exemplify key sociological concepts such as gender fluidity, adolescent development, and parenting nonconforming youth. I'm Just Anneke, winner of the Changemaker Award (2010), chronicles the path of a 12-year-old youth from Vancouver, British Columbia, for whom the onset of puberty has sparked a gender self-identity crisis. Much of Anneke's gender fluid exploration occurs within the social context of the family, peers, school, and community. Despite external constraints, Anneke is resolved to be true to herself and maintain a gender fluid identity that matches what she feels on the inside. The film raises multiple considerations concerning the complexities of parenting a gender nonconforming adolescent.The Family Journey provides intimate narratives from interviews with parents and siblings of gender fluid youth and teenagers. It is organized around three themes: challenges, acceptance, and celebration. Within this segment, family members detail the varying emotional consequences of grappling with gender ambiguity, practicing skillful parenting, and fostering supportive family and community dynamics. The film is consistently effective in engaging viewers and leads to provocative questioning around gender fluidity and social support systems.I'm Just Anneke and The Family Journey could be put to good use in courses examining gender, sexuality, family, body and embodiment, sociology of children, health and social behavior, and introductory sociology, as well as youth and society. Though due to the wide variety of topics explored, these uses are not exhaustive. We focus next on how the films can effectively illustrate three significant sociological themes for teaching undergraduate students. They are gender fluidity, adolescent development, and parenting.First, the films are superb and tangible examples of gender fluidity. Given the institutionalization of the binary gender order, this concept may be difficult for many undergraduate students to understand. Anneke's story offers a stark contrast of how gender is expressed along a continuum: For example, Anneke states that gay, lesbian, and trans do not fit. She sees herself as somewhere in the middle. Anneke's mother states that she wants her child to be true to who she sees herself as being...gender fluid. These two quotes highlight the empowerment of Anneke's choice regarding self-identification as gender fluid.Second, previous literature documents adolescence as a time period characterized by trying on and expressing identity. However, the case of Anneke illustrates that when adolescent development involves exploring gender identity along a continuum, pedagogical tools are sorely lacking (see Wentling et al.  and Davis  for exceptions). One of the unique contributions of these films is that they provide a point of reference for teaching about gender ambiguity and its consequences as part of the developmental process. For example, peer acceptance is a critical component of adolescent development necessary for healthy adjustment. Anneke's struggles suggest a heightened vulnerability to chronic social rejection of peers who govern social interaction around gender. While the pressures of acceptance and inclusion for youth are germane to adolescent development, Anneke is symbolic of a new generation of young people who face greater distress navigating the journey of gender self-identity, presented identity, and perceived identity (see Lucal 1999:784) while simultaneously striving for peer acceptance.Finally, the films raise key issues for parenting in the twenty-first century, which is arguably already formidable. For parents of children in transition, is gender identification necessary for skillful parenting? How will parents prepare gender nonconforming youth for the daily stressors of rejection as well as for the emotional vicissitudes at school and home? The films do not offer oversimplified solutions. Rather, parents share experiences, strength and hope. First, parents reveal that it is difficult to parent skillfully without a point of reference. For example, one parent affirms: I didn't even know how to look on the internet, if I wanted to do an internet search, showing the daunting task of parenting without adequate resources. Second, parents indicate that raising a gender fluid youth requires a significant investment of time and energy, There is a lot of work to get everything lined up to make this transition as successful as it possibly can be. Third, parents may face isolation and rejection within neighborhood, extended family, and community, as illustrated by one mother of a child in transition, it's you against the rest of the world. While the films do not fully explore the long-term consequences regarding gender fluidity, adolescent development, and parenting a nonconforming youth across the life course, they do an extraordinary job of introducing these concepts.I'm Just Anneke and The Family Journey address topics that are under-explored and socially emergent. One of their distinct contributions is providing of a point of reference for parents and educators who lack a knowledge base regarding youth in transition. Further, they equip viewers with vocabulary, real life experiences, and eye-opening insights to enrich teaching any undergraduate course in sociology.
