Did you know that if you text 741741 when feeling depressed or suicidal - a crisis worker will text you back right away and continue to talk for as long as you want or need? A lot of people do not like talking on the phone and would be more comfortable texting. It's a free service to anyone who lives in the US. In addition, the first week of October is mental illness awareness week.

"The film includes, as mentioned previously, several shots of the film’s cisgender main actor, Victor Polster, staring at a mirror, with Victor’s genitalia on full display. These scenes convey a creepy, voyeuristic obsession with Lara’s body that never loses its ick factor. Rather than focusing at all on the psychology of Lara, the film presents scene after scene of her physicality: she dances and dances, removes bloody tap shoes, uses tape on her genitals over and over (there are about five shots of her taping down her penis), she gets hormone shots. Rather than uplifting Lara, the film almost seems to want to humiliate her and lament her struggle."
