Tuesday, February 8, 7pm
Sainer Auditorium, New College of Florida
In-person screening with post-film panel discussion with Director Meg Daniels, Dean Yoleidy Rosario Hernandez (Associate Dean of Students and Director of the Center for Diversity and Inclusion at Ringling College of Art and Design), and Rev. Robin White (Unity of Sarasota). The discussion will be moderated by Alex Griffin, Assistant Professor of Religion at New College of Florida.
There are 30 transgender, ordained ministers in the United States; six are in North Carolina. Dawn Flynn, Mykal Shannon, Liam Hooper, and Debra Hopkins are battling narrow-mindedness within the religious community, their families, and NC natives. In order to live their authentic selves, Dawn and Liam have thrown their loved ones into personal identity crises. They are bravely preaching from a pulpit despite the danger they face not only as a transgender person living in the South but also as transgender ministers navigating their way through local, state, and national governing bodies who decide what it means to be a human being.
Proceeds from our in-person screening will be split with our non-profit partner ALSO Youth.
ALSO Youth Mission: Empowering LGBTQ+ youth and their allies and creating inclusive communities.
