Oscar nominated filmmaker David France tells the gripping story of the beginning of the modern transgender movement. Sylvia has been called “the Rosa Parks of the modern transgender movement,” and Marsha, “the Bodhisattva of Christopher Street.” Together they formed the first transgender rights organization, STAR (Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries), and started the enduring civil rights march for gender nonconforming people.
The screening is followed by a discussion with representatives of Transvanilla and Háttér Society. The discussion will be in Hungarian.
No admission fee.
