London hosts its first trans film festival
Transgender, intersex, androgyny, gender variant, trans feminists, gender queer, and gender fluid persons of all natures will be represented at next month’s London Transgender Film Festival.
Organisers said the event is “long overdue.”
At present there are no London film festivals completely dedicated to transgender issues.
The festival that takes place from November 7th to 9th at the Ritzy Picturehouse cinema and B3 Media in Brixton.
Highlights include Somewhere In Between, which traces the formation of an Asian girl’s androgynous identity through documenting real life images with first person voice over narration, and Two-Spirited People, an documentary about historical and contemporary Native American concepts of gender, sexuality and sexual orientation.
“We aim to increase trans visibility and acknowledgement, question the gender binary, dispel ignorance and demystify stereotypes, unite and support a diverse LGBTQI community and celebrate trans spaces and their friends,” said organiser MissTer Scratch.
