LGBT Friday Flicks! - Almost Myself

April 11 1:30 at LGBT Center CSU 194
Director/producer Tom Murray weaves together fascinating stories examining the trials and tribulations facing the transgender community, focusing on women over 40 who had been born male, but who transitioned to female. As he travels across the country, Murray films a variety of women speaking about themselves. Films start at 1:30 and are followed by a one-hour discussion in the LGBT Center.

LGBT Friday Flicks! - Southern Comfort

April 18 1:30 at LGBT Center CSU 194
Southern Comfort follows the final year of Robert Eads' life, a 52-year-old female to male transsexual who lives in the back hills of Georgia. "A hillbilly and proud of it," he cuts a striking figure: sharp-tongued, bearded, tobacco pipe in hand.. The voices in the film are not only rarely heard, but also are commonly thought to be non-existent. A rare blend of humor, romance, and tragedy, it is the first non-fiction film to intimately tell a trans-to-trans love story, set against a disturbing tale of gender bias as it unfolds before the camera. Films start at 1:30 and are followed by a one-hour discussion in the LGBT Center.

LGBT Friday Flicks! - Hedwig and the Angry Inch

April 25 1:30 at LGBT Center CSU 194
Hedwig, born a boy named Hansel in East Berlin, fell in love with an American G.I. and underwent a sex-change operation in order to marry him and flee to the West. Unfortunately, nothing worked out quite as it was supposed to - years later, Hedwig is leading her rock band on a tour of the U.S., telling her life story through a series of concerts at Bilgewater Inn seafood restaurants. Her tour dates coincide with those of arena-rock star Tommy Gnosis, a wide-eyed boy who once loved Hedwig... but then left with all her songs. Films start at 1:30 and are followed by a one-hour discussion in the LGBT Center.
