PFLAG Salem will celebrate the Transgender Day of Visibility with a special screening of a movie only available on the festival circuit.
PFLAG Salem, in collaboration with Willamette University’s Gender Resource and Advocacy Center, will screen The Most Dangerous Year at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 31 in Ford Hall, Room 122, on the willamette University campus.
The 2018 documentary highlights the fight families endured for transgender civil rights in Washington State. In 2016, a group of Washington State families with transgender kids joined the fight against the wave of discriminatory anti-transgender legislation sweeping through the nation and into their home state. With the help of a coalition of state lawmakers and civil rights activists, these families embarked on an uncharted journey of fighting to protect and preserve their children’s human rights and freedoms in a present-day civil rights movement.
The film will be followed by a panel discussion and a Q&A session.
