Transgender Voices & Visibility: Naked on the Inside

This Saturday an incredible event will be occurring at my new work site! Transgender Voices & Visibility, a series I began in March with performance artist Sassafras Lowrey will repeat with a screening of the movie Naked on the Inside.

I saw the Manhattan premier of the film at disTHIS! and was amazed at how (surprisingly) non-cheesy it was! A documentary that asks six people to talk about their bodies could easily become overly self-reflective and pedantic. But not this documentary. Naked on the Inside manages to remain elusive of any over-arching theme on unity. We see six people struggling/past struggling to align their bodies with their spirits. An honest conversation begins about why this disconnection exists in the first place and subjects touch on religion, family, geography, race, and media representations. It's nothing new, but it is a different and dignified approach.

So come out to Bay Shore this Saturday!! 7-10pm at the Community Center. We'll have some refreshments and a wonderful Q & A hosted by Lawrence Carter-Long, Director of Advocacy for the Disabilities Network of NYC. I've been trying to upload the pdf but no luck just yet...

This will not succeed in fact, that's what I suppose.
