NYC Premiere of "MAJOR"

  • Tishman Auditorium, The New School , 63 5th Avenue (at 14th Street), New York, NY (map)

“MAJOR!” follows the life and campaigns of Miss Major Griffin-Gracy, a 73-year-old Black transgender woman, a veteran of the 1969 Stonewall Rebellion and organizer who has been fighting for the liberation of trans women of color for over 40 years. Miss Major’s personal story and activism for transgender civil rights, from mobile outreach and AIDS prevention to fighting the prison industrial complex, intersects LGBT struggles for justice and equality from the 1960s to today. The screening will include a Q&A with Miss Major and the filmmakers, Annalise Ophelian and StormMiguel Flores. For more information about the film, please visit http://missmajorfilm.com.
This event will also feature the premiere of “The Personal Stuff,” a short animation about Miss Major, directed by Reina Gossett with art by Micah Bazant and animation by Pamela Chavez.
This event is free and open to the public.
