He was living in Lawrence, Mass. and was bullied as a gay teen until he found his own identity as a performer and writer. The PBS documentary will be screened at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 6, in the auditorium of Slayter Hall.

Bernabe will be present to talk about his experiences and answer questions.
