Trans Day Of Motherfucking Brilliance! says
FEATURING: MAJOR! A documentary film about the life and work of Miss Major Griffin-Gracy, a 75-year-old Black transgender activist who has been fighting for the rights of trans women of color for over 40 years!

SCHEDULE:

5:30-7:00pm: Social time and community dinner! Come hang out, eat good food, contribute to the DIY Trans Liberation Timeline, and meet organizers from Sankofa Collective NW, Greater Portland Trans Unity, Critical Resistance, and the Portland Immigrant Rights Coalition! We'll have cute stuff for sale and you can sign up to help organize or support the 2017 Portland Trans March.

7-9:00pm: Community screening of MAJOR! We'll talk afterward about intersections of race, gender, and criminalization in Major's life and how her activism inspires ours.

This is a benefit for Sankofa Collective Northwest and Greater Portland Trans Unity! Suggested donation is $5-$10. Absolutely no one turned away for lack of funds.

***
Q Center is ADA accessible and the film will be shown with English captions. ASL interpretation will be provided upon request. Email us ASAP (no later than March 27) about this or other accessibility accommodations: GreaterPortlandTransUnity@gmail.com.

Perfume, cologne, and scented detergents can trigger headaches and respiratory issues for people with chemical sensitivity. In order to make this event more accessible for everyone, please refrain from using scents if you can.

Visibility is an important political strategy, but for many of us it is not optional or safe. In Trump's America, more than ever, trans women, nonbinary femmes, people of color, poor people, people with disabilities, immigrants, and people who are incarcerated are punished and even murdered for being seen.

On International Transgender Day of Visibility, we will not focus our limited time and energy on an awareness-raising event for cisgender people. Instead, TDoMFB is for us: A day for trans and gender nonconforming people to eat together, remember our histories, activate our creativity, and connect our networks for trans liberation.
