We Who Are Sexy:The Images of Transgender People In Cinema

If you're looking for something to do in the San Francisco Bay Area today,  historians Jenni Olson and Susan Stryker will be presenting on a subject that is near and dear to my heart, the images of transpeople in film.

The location is the stately Victoria Theatre in San Francisco CA and you can join Jenni and Susan starting at 2 PM PDT for an interesting take on the history of transgender images in film.   

It will be a program that combines on stage conversation with film clips showcasing an array of rarely seen tidbits ranging from the bad old stereotypical days of guys in dresses and pathological transsexuals all the way up to the empowered self-representations of the early 90's and the hot transgender best of the early 21st century.

And you get two people who I respect and admire in this community breaking it down for you as well.

You still have two hours to get there, grab some tickets for it and get your learn on..
