Transgender Film Series:  Film Shorts @ Sateren Auditorium, Augsburg College | Minneapolis | Minnesota | United States

Twin Cities Pride and Gender Reel Minnesota present three amazing nights of free film screenings and Q&A’s – 4/5, 4/12 and 4/26. All films will be shown at Sateren Auditorium on the Augsburg College campus in Minneapolis.

4/26/17: Film Shorts.

7:00 PM -8:00 PM — From dating calamities and bathroom mishaps, join us for a fun filled hour of film shorts featuring some of the funniest flicks to premiere at Gender Reel in the past 6 years. Films include: Dating Sucks: A Genderqueer Misadventure (12 min), Crazy Hot (10 min), The Heartbreak of VD (13 min), Cover Up (11 min) and Faggotgirl Gets Busy In the Bathroom (4 min).

Other screening nights:

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

Post-Screening Q&A discussion: Gender Reel Executive Director, Joe Ippolito and Twin Cities Radio Personality Quinn Villagomez

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.

Post-Screening Q&A Discussion: Twin Cities Transgender activist Qamar Saadig Saoud.

This film series is co-hosted by Augsburg College Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex and Asexual (LGBTQIA) Student Services, Augsburg College Queer Pride Alliance, Augsburg College Queer Indigenous & People of Color, Reclaim!, and Transforming Families. Thank you!
