4/5/17: Gender Revolution: A Journey with Katie Couric (7 – 9 pm). This documentary explores the rapidly evolving complexities of gender identity. Produced by National Geographic and former Today Anchor Katie Couric, this film can help — even the most uninformed viewer — expand their concept and knowledge of the transgender experience. To educate herself and viewers, Couric, introduces the viewer to the people “behind the headlines” by talking with trans activists, doctors, families members and individuals around the world. #GenderRevolution

4/12/17: FREE CECE! (7 – 9 pm). This powerful story highlights the experience of CeCe McDonald, a local, 28-year-old African American, bi-trans woman and LGBTQ activist convicted of second-degree manslaughter after defending herself against a man who assaulted her outside a Minneapolis bar in 2012. This film pushes past the everyday narratives of victimhood surrounding the lives of transgender people and highlights the way CeCe and others trans people continue to fight for the rights of trans people, despite their own interpersonal struggles.
