BOY MEETS GIRL, the new transgender comedy that features a trans lead actor, is discussed with filmmaker Eric Schaeffer, who details how he came to write a film with a transgendered hero, and how he cast the part, in this uncensored interview with Gabriel Mizrahi for TheLipTV.

GUEST BIO:
After driving a cab in his hometown of New York City for 8 years in his twenties, Eric Schaeffer released MY LIFE'S IN TURNAROUND to rave reviews. Since then, he has cemented his multi-hyphenate status with films such as IF LUCY FELL, FALL, WIREY SPINDELL, NEVER AGAIN, MIND THE GAP, THEY'RE OUT OF THE BUSINESS, and AFTER FALL, WINTER. Eric's new film, BOY MEETS GIRL, starring Michael Welch (Twilight) and newcomer Michelle Hendley, is a romantic coming of age comedy about a transgender girl and her best friend in Kentucky and will be released later in 2014.
