The Reel Queer Film Series at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center presents free screenings of LGBTQ-themed independent, arthouse, and documentary films! Talkbacks follow each screening. All of the films we screen are not rated higher than PG-13 unless specified otherwise.
The film screenings are held in person and virtually on the 2nd Thursdays at 6 p.m. Join us November 10th at 6pm to watch and discuss Expanding Gender!
These four short documentaries explore the varied identities of trans and gender-expansive youth and young adults.
In Tomgirl, we meet Jake, a confident and lovable gender-expansive seven-year-old who invites us into his world of hockey playing and skirt wearing to explore the transformative power of love and support from adults. Next, experience the true story of a young Hawaiian girl who aspires to become the leader of her school’s boys-only hula troupe and an inspiring teacher who uses traditional culture to empower her in A Place in the Middle.
Monica’s Story traces the journey of resilience and self-acceptance of Monica Rose, a strong young transwoman of color. Despite being rejected by her church and family, Monica sought out support from professionals in the LGTBQ+ community and today is a proud, confident person with a bright future.
Finally, Passing profiles the lives of three young transmen of color. This short doc explores what life is like living as a black man when no one knows you are transgender, and how each man perceives his own journey with gender after many years of being presumed as a cisgender man.
