Feb. 1st QTBIPOC Movie Night
Join us Feb. 1st 6-8 pm at the center for a viewing of Disclosure, an eye-opening look at transgender depictions in film and television, revealing how Hollywood simultaneously reflects and manufactures our deepest anxieties about gender. Leading trans thinkers and creatives like Laverne Cox discuss how decades-old stereotypes, memes, and tropes in the media both form and reflect our understanding of trans issues. These media tropes, memes, and stereotypes have shaped the cultural narrative about transgender people and inform everything from dating and domestic violence to school policy and national legislation. Since 80% of the population have never met a transgender person, all they know is rooted in media depictions, which are predominantly problematic and have rarely included participation by actual trans people.
