==>Trans Film Night: TRANS DAY OF REMEMBRANCE
==>Free Film! Free Snacks! Free Talk!
The Trans Film Screening Series hosts a free screening of: PAY IT NO MIND: MARSHA P. JOHNSON and REMEMBER ME IN RED.
Everyone welcome. Allies welcome.
► PAY IT NO MIND: MARSHA P. JOHNSON : a documentary about the revolutionary trans activist, Stonewall instigator, Andy Warhol model, drag queen, sex worker and generous New York character. From the 1960's through her too-soon demise, Marsha persevered through a life embodied by her middle initial P, which stood for "Pay It No Mind." Queer history doesn't just happen. Trans rights don't just happen. The revolution takes a queen with a smile, flowers in her hair – and possibly a brick in hand! This Trans Day of Remembrance let's think through our historical responsibility – take action – and smile.
► REMEMBER ME IN RED: questions how even when we choose to be our most authentic selves in our lives, how will be remembered in death? This short is a testament to all those who live on their own terms, only to risk dying on someone else's.
+ Talk-back after film.

Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
