Direct violence and discriminatory legislation against the transgender community continues to rise at a time when transgender visibility in pop culture continues to break glass ceilings. Step into the lives of three transgender people in the American northwest who are living authentically and taking action to make our communities safer and more prosperous for all.

  Jeremiah will be on hand from 11:30-noon and 1:30-3:30 p.m. in the Women’s Building to discuss the film and answer questions.
