Thursday, November 21st at 4:00 PM
Screening of “Boy I Am”
Q&A with filmmaker Sam Feder
Tulane University, LBC 210
Tackling the resistance of some women in feminist and lesbian communities who view FTM transitioning as at best a “trend” or at worst an anti-feminist act that taps into male privilege, this groundbreaking film opens up a dialog between the lesbian, feminist, and transgender communities while also promoting understanding of transgender issues for general audiences. An important exploration of issues rarely touched upon by most films portraying female-to-male (FTM) transgender experiences. Followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker Sam Feder.
