Transgender Film Fest tgfilmfest

Tuesday | April 19 | 6-8pm  

Cross-Cultural Center Comunidad

These genre-blurring short films weave elements of documentary and narrative film to entertain and enlighten with sweet, seductive, and subversive visions from the queerest part of the LGBT spectrum. The screening includes works by established and emerging filmmakers including Iris prizewinner Lee Mi-Rang's The Bath, and Transproofed by Andrea James and Calpernia Addams, the real-life subject of the Emmy-winning Soldiers Girl. Zsa-Zsa Gershick's Door Prize won for Best Short at the 2010 Kansas City Gay and Lesbian Film Festival while award-winning Queerer Than Thou has screened at over 50 LGBT film festivals on four continents. These films will make your heart twinge, melt, race, and pound. Enjoy the ride!

This event is co-hosted by the Campus Community Centers and the Asian Pacific Islander Student Alliance.

Control Art Exhibit    

Wednesday | May 4 | 6-8pm  

Dolores Huerta Room (Below LGBT Resource Center)

Join the Women's Center for a night of art exploring the topic of "Control". Throughout the night we will explore, through various art forms, the question of how a woman's relationship to her body changes when technologies such as the birth control pill, fertility treatments, and the like allow us to change or alter aspects of our body. This event is free and open to the public. Some snacks and drink will be provided. We will be displaying art from the community, as well as screening various documentary films."
