The Transgender District launched their 3-part screening series in mid-August. Their work is near and dear to our hearts, so QWOCMAP was excited to collaborate with this Beloved Community Partner. We were also thrilled because our QWOCMAP Filmmakers are in different workshops, so this was the first time that these nonbinary, gender nonconforming, and transgender BIPOC filmmakers had seen each other’s films.

Summer of Joy
This screening and the filmmaker Q&A were beautifully and loving moderated by Jupiter Peraza on August 27th. She brought us all to tears along with films that included:
My Beautiful Resistance by Penny Baldado
Home by Gato Rodriguez

La Entrevista by Bersath Verdugo Dominguez
The Wink & The Pucker by Ami Puri
