Boys don’t cry is based on a true story about the life of Teena Brandon as she lives the life of a male. She changes her name to Brandon Teena and dates several women who did not know that she was biologically a female. He develops a reputation for being something of a ladies’ man. Eventually he falls in love with Lana and befriends Lana’s friends, who like him at first. When they find out that Brandon Teena is actually a female living the life of a male, they rape her and kill her.

I do believe that if they watched boys don’t cry they would see some of what we go through and somewhat of how we are discriminated against. Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot more ways that the GLBT community are discriminated against such as: people saying that we do not believe in God or do not belong in church, we are denied jobs, we are denied places to live, and even stores and restaurants that we can go into all because of our sexual orientation....
