All welcome. Allies welcome.
► LOST IN THE CROWD: Daily survival is a constant struggle. This documentary takes up that reality by following a group of trans & queer youth living on the streets of New York, many whom are HIV+, involved in sex work, and survivors of rape, abuse - and family rejection. Individual voices combine to expose how youth face neglect from the societal structures that surround them. These youth speak to their fight to survive in a world hostile to their very existence and to the dreams and desires that keep them going. An emotional look at the pursuit of self re-invention and the hurt of homelessness.
dir.: Susi Graff
► CHANGING HOUSE: Trans lesbian couple, Rusty and Chelsea devoted 15 years to making their Brooklyn home a communal living space for trans women in need. The film traces "Transy House's" roots, growth and unfortunate unsustainability in this intimate look back at its rich activist history.
dir.: Z.A. Martohardjono
► TRANS JANUARY: Through digital storytelling this Toronto-based film talks back to the shelter system and thinks through solidarity. It complicates the cold, coping, community, and care.
