Out On Tuesday Film Series
(this time, on a Friday)

“Transgender Tuesdays”
Hear about the lives of twelve people who came to this ground-breaking trans clinic starting in 1993, in their own words. Their stories reach back to some of the "bad old days" of the 1950s, recalling the sexual freedom movement of the 1960s, drug ravages of the '70s, Women's and LGB (and finally T) Liberation in the '80s, the HIV epidemic and queer activism of the '90s.

These accounts reveal what trans life was like over those decades on the streets of San Francisco. It is the lives of these trans pioneers (often unknown even by younger trans folk today) that provide pride in the present and hope for the future.

Transgender Day of Remembrance
This special screening will observe the international Transgender Day of Remembrance, when the world honours the memory of those murdered in acts of anti-transgender violence.

The screening will begin with the Iranti-org & Transgender Intersex Africa (TIA) short film on the struggle for trans human rights in South African schools.
