🏆IRIS PRIZE AUDIENCE AWARD🏆

Today we woke up to the incredible news that Birthday Boy won the 2021 Co-op Iris Prize Festival Audience Award. 😮🏆


To know that Alex’s story has resonated with so many British people is an amazing feeling. At a time when our media seems determined to vilify trans and gender non conforming people, winning this award gives us hope for a brighter future within the U.K.


We would like to thank every single person that has helped us to create this film, and those that have and continue to support us on it’s journey.
