MAJOR! Premiere This Friday
This Friday will be an event I hope I get the chance to attend in the premiere of the highly anticipated movie MAJOR! at the San Francisco Transgender Film Festival.
The film festival runs from September 12-15 at the Roxie Theater, but the MAJOR! premiere will happen at the Castro Theater.
MAJOR! is the documentary directed by Annalise Ophelian about Miss Major Griffin-Gracy, who is a Stonewall vet and Bay Area resident who has fought for trans human rights for trans women of color for over 40 years.
The 75 years young Miss Major recently retired as the executive director of the Transgender Gender Variant Intersex Justice Project, better known as TGI Justice, and is a beloved and much respected figure for many of us in the community. I've also had the pleasure of spending quality time with her at various conferences around the country over the last few years.
While I've had the pleasure of seeing a rough cut of the movie, would love to see the final finished documentary and Miss Major at the same time.
TransGriot Update: Tried, just couldn't make it happen. Will just have to see it when it hits my neck of the woods.
