About the film:
MAJOR! is a documentary film (91 mins) exploring the life and campaigns of Miss Major Griffin-Gracy, a formerly incarcerated Black transgender elder and activist who has been fighting for the rights of trans women of color for over 40 years.

At the heart of MAJOR! is a social justice framework that puts the subjects at the center of their story. Miss Major is a veteran of the Stonewall Rebellion and a survivor of Attica State Prison, a former sex worker, an elder, and a community leader and human rights activist. She is simply 'Mama' to many in her community. If history is held within us, embodied in our loves and losses, then Miss Major is a living library, a resource for generations to come to more fully understand the rich heritage of the Queer Rights movement that is so often whitewashed and rendered invisible.

Captions will be available in English.
Food will be available, including halal and vegan options.
Coffee and tea will be available.

Attendees will be entered into a raffle for a cute Trans Awareness Week prize pack!
