Celebrate Transgender & Gender-Variant Visibility at the San Francisco Transgender Film Festival with Shahid For Change

Start: Friday, November 08, 2019 7:30 PM

End: Friday, November 08, 2019 9:30 PM


Celebrate transgender and gender-variant visibility, culture and community on Friday night, November 8th, at the San Francisco Transgender Film Festival while volunteering with Shahid For Change! Many folks still don't know that in 2004, Shahid Buttar filed the very first marriage equality court case in New York State, so let's get the word out while supporting the T in our LGBTQ+ community!

This year's festival takes place at The Roxie Theater. While The Roxie is wheelchair accessible, the bathrooms in the main building are not great for wheelchairs, however the Little Roxie next door will be accessible for anyone who needs access to wheelchair accessible bathrooms.

Friday night's lineup is as follows, and closed captioning to both films is provided:

THE WHISTLE, directed by StormMiguel Florez
  • A feature documentary film about a special time and place in Southwest U.S. LGBT history, and the secret codes shared among young queers and lesbians in 1970s and 80s Albuquerque, New Mexico as a means of self-identification and finding community.
DENIM directed Daryen Ru & Lucas McGowen
  • On a regular day at school, Micayla is outed as transgender when a rival classmate vengefully takes a photo of her using the girl’s bathroom.
