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.
