Description

Award-winning filmmaker, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, brings us, “A bracing hour of personal history, struggle and liberation.” (L.A. Times) The Trans List explores the range of experiences lived by Americans who identify as transgender (an umbrella term for people whose gender identity does not conform to that typically associated with the sex they were assigned at birth). No two experiences of trans people are exactly alike. Transgender, transsexual, gender-queer, bi-gender, and non-binary are just a few of the multitude of self-identifiers in the trans community. This film gives a platform to a diverse group of eleven individuals to tell their stories in their own words of their experience with identity, family, career, love, struggle and accomplishment. Among those sharing their stories are an Olympian, a student, a model, a civil rights attorney, a poet, and a U.S. Army Staff Sergeant. A “…poignant documentary (which) promotes respect, empathy, and advocacy.” (Common Sense Media)

Doors open at 6 pm for refreshments and conversation. FREE movie and snacks. (Donations gratefully accepted.)
