Major! Film Screening and Q&A
Thursday, June 22
Major! (dir. Annalise Ophelian, 2016) follows the life and campaigns of Miss Major Griffin-Gracy, a 73-year-old Black transgender woman who has been fighting for the rights of trans women of color for over 40 years. Miss Major’s personal story and activism for transgender civil rights, from mobile outreach and AIDS prevention to fighting the prison industrial complex, intersects LGBT struggles for justice and equality from the 1960s to today. With LGBT rights currently being debated across the country, Miss Major’s life is a testament to the fierce survivalism and everyday concerns of transgender women of color, who so often live in the margin of the already marginalized.
