Screening of Major! & KIKI

Take a look inside the lives and culture of trans and queer people of color.

Join the California Endowment, Sol Collective, Gender Health Center and Equality California for a screening of ‘Major!’ and ‘KIKI,’ two films that explore the histories, advocacy, and lives of trans people in the United States. The event will include a discussion and Q&A about challenges facing the trans community, and ways to cultivate allies across local groups to create healthier communities. #RiseUpAsOne

KIKI follows seven individuals from the Kiki community in New York City over the course of four years. The film utilizes their preparations and performances at Kiki balls to explore battles with homelessness, illness, and prejudice, as well as their gains toward political influence and free gender expression.

MAJOR! chronicles the life and campaigns of Miss Major Griffin-Gracy, a 75-year-old Black transgender elder and activist who has been fighting for the rights of trans women of color for over 40 years. From the Stonewall riots to today, Miss Major has played a key role in the trans-liberation movement.

No charge for entry. Lunch included.
