Susan Sarandon is re-visiting her ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW roots to raise money for a documentary she's helping to produce.
DEEP RUN and tells the story of Cole Ray Davis, an Evangelical transgender teen living in rural North Carolina.
“Cole was a young queer Christian who defied all of my expectations of what an Evangelical believer could be," explains director Hillevi Loven. "When I met Cole in 2008, Cole was the first gay girl to come out in a remote rural high school. He was adamant about standing up for himself and others, as a young visible queer, and adamant about his faith in a loving God despite condemnation from his community and church leaders. When Cole eventually came out as a transgender man, and assumed a male identity, he was met with further hostility."
Sarandon has loaned her likeness to a ROCKY HORROR-themed shirt to help raise money for DEEP RUN. The "Embrace Change" shirt is available for just two weeks, ending June 5.
