Further information: 

On Transgender Day of Remembrance we'll be hosting a special screening of the critically acclaimed TANGERINE, of which Rolling Stone magazine said, "it grabs you from the first frame; gritty and ground breaking" at Tyneside Cinema followed by a panel discussion .

Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR), occurs annually on the 20th of November, it's a day to memorialize those who have been murdered as a result of transphobia (the hatred or fear of transgender and gender non-conforming people) and to bring attention to the continued violence endured by the transgender community.

In collaboration with Be: Trans Support & Development North and Northern Pride, we'll be showing this amazing film, talk to the Director Sean Baker via Skype, followed by a discussion, with music and commemorative Roll of the Dead in the Bar Café with Divine Trash.

We'll also be showing Mark Chapmans thought provoking short TRANS starring local Trans artist Kali Scott who'll be joining us to say a few words.

So don't miss this extraordinary film - shot entirely on mobile phones, and with trans actors playing trans roles (!!), it's been described by the New York Times as "A TOUGH YET TENDER, GRITTY YET GORGEOUS MOVIE MADE WITH INGENIOUS SKILL. A neo-screwball chase flick with a dash of Rainer Werner Fassbinder. A dizzy, often exuberant down-and-dirty romp" and by Hairpin as "the very best depiction of a blow job performed in a car wash ever".

So please join for an evening that will commemorate and celebrate Trans lives.

We have an allocation of limited free tickets which Be: Trans Support & Development will grant to Trans people who wish to attend. Please contact Tara Accalia Stone email tara@be-north.org.uk
