Social Support: The Aggressives (film)
January 26, 2013 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm CST
January’s social support meeting: “The Aggressives” (film)
The Aggressives, a 2005 film by Daniel Peddle, is a rarely explored documentary about six self-defined “aggressives” — primarily African-American individuals assigned female at birth who express themselves in uniquely masculine ways. The film powerfully explores their lives and examines gender in ways that are not often part of traditional trans-narratives.
Black History Month — February — is just around the corner. In previous years, we have screened films like “Paris is Burning” and “How Do I Look?” This film — The Aggressives — highlights the “flip side” of some gendered identities and expressions within African-American communities.
A discussion will follow the film.
Open rap is from 6:00 – 7:15pm
Open rap is the time to connect connection with fellow Trans+ and SOFFA individuals. This gently facilitated time is especially devoted to exploring the issues you bring in – sharing your experiences and stories, asking questions, seeking referrals, gathering resources. We’ll assure this hour+ will stay focused on your needs, and the discussion you generate.
