We are very excited to be having our New York City premiere on this year’s Trans Day of Visibility, (March 31st) at 3:00PM!
Come on out to Groove, (125 MacDougal at the corner of West 3rd St.), for a screening of TransGeek and a discussion with the filmmakers and trans geeks from the local community.
We are asking for donations at the door to offset costs. So bring a few bucks to support the screening…and a few more so you can indulge in Groove’s fabulous food and drink.
See you there!
TransGeek brings together the stories of transgender people working in the tech industry and existing within geek culture. These are the stories of people that risked their careers and their lives to be their authentic selves. These are the stories of people that persevere in an industry that undervalues women, LGBT folk, and people of color; to pursue their passions. These are the stories of people that found themselves in the pages of science fiction and fantasy, or didn’t and wrote themselves in anyway. These are the stories of people that turned to the Internet to build communities that transcended geography and bigotry, and then found themselves again the target of hatred and harassment. TransGeek Movie is about making a place for transgender people to tell their own stories in their own voices. The film uses in-depth interviews conducted over a period of several years to explore the lives, hobbies, politics, careers, and thoughts of transgender geeks, and features an original score composed by Zoë Blade, a British electronic musician and transgender woman.
