FILM: "Trans" Screening PLUS Panel Discussion



AWARD-WINNING FILM TRANS, FEATURING LOCAL TEEN CHLOE ANNE LACEY, SCREENS IN FRESNO

PANEL DISCUSSION ON TRANSGENDER ISSUES TO FOLLOW SCREENING





The documentary film TRANS will screen for free at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Fresno on Friday May 31 at 7:00 PM.    Following the film will be a panel discussion featuring several individuals from the documentary (including 10-year-old Dannan, a male-to-female transgender child) as well as the film creator, Chris Arnold.   


TRANS is an extraordinary film about men and women… and all the variations in between. The film features a local teen, Chloe Anne Lacey (born Justin Brian Lacey), of Buchanan High School whose death led her mother, Allison Murphy to become a tireless advocate for transgender awareness and suicide prevention.   It also highlights the story of Navy Flight Surgeon Dr. Christine McGinn, a male-to-female transgender doctor.   


The transgender community is one of the most misunderstood and mistreated minorities in the United States.  Many would like to understand transgender people better, particularly those who work with diverse individuals in their profession, but most don’t know where to begin in the effort to gain true insight—the film TRANS offers a sensitive and thought provoking glimpse into the lives of transgender individuals and the panel discussion afterwards will further this opportunity to gain true understanding.
