There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

Pioneering gay German filmmaker Rosa von Praunheim explores America’s burgeoning trans rights movement—from early leaders like Virginia Prince to contemporary activist groups like the titular Transexual Menace—in this powerful, yet sensitive documentary from 1996. Paired with Alisa Lebow’s short film, OUTLAW, a portrait of Stone Butch Blues author Leslie Feinberg.

Queer film historian and series programmer Elizabeth Purchell will join us for a discussion after the screening on November 19.
