Bright Family Screening Room

View the video project I AM: Trans People Speak, and stay for a discussion afterward. These short vignettes feature the voices of transgender individuals talking about the struggles and strengths that come from their trans identity. This project raises awareness about the diversity that exists within transgender communities. Following the screening, the subjects of the videos will join the audience for a panel discussion about what it was like to participate in the project, share their stories nationally, and how things have changed since the video was released. The event is part of Emerson's The Authentic Me: Transgender Awareness Week.
