International Transgender Day of Visibility is honored every year on March 31 and is a time to celebrate transgender people around the globe and the courage it takes to live openly and authentically, while also raising awareness of the discrimination that trans people still face. In recognition of this important day, The Center will show More Than T, a recent documentary that depicts the illuminating and empowering stories of seven transgender and gender-nonconforming individuals. Finding one’s path in life is infinitely complex, yet many trans people are externally defined solely by that small part of their journey.
Through textured vignettes, collaborators Silas Howard (Transparent) and Jen Richards (Her Story) illuminate themes of family, resilience, self-determination, and finding your calling, through the perspective of trans people of color.
