November 20 - November 22
We are excited to announce our first Tampa Bay Transgender
Film Festival in partnership with St Pete Pride!
The vision for the Tampa Bay Transgender Film Festival,
is to create a space grounded in and centered around the transgender
community, support those in film who support our community,
and share these films with our allies. Our Transgender Screening
Committee reviewed a number of films, and after much consideration
they selected five documentaries with diverse and critical narratives
to share with our audience.
For some individuals, particularly those within the LGBTQ+ community,
engaging with these films may be emotionally challenging. Due
to subjects of dysphoria, violence, and death, viewer discretion
For grounding purposes, the Tampa Bay Transgender Film
Festival will be providing a pre-recorded centering
video brought to you by our Elevating Event Sponsors Love, Hugh
and Medicine Within, LLC.
To close our festival, at 7 p.m. EST on Sunday, November 22,
a Transgender Healing Space will be available exclusively for
any registered attendees who identify under the trans+ umbrella.
This private, affirming space will be live and virtual.
At noon on Friday, November 20, Transgender Day of Remembrance,
all five films will be launched with full streaming access.
Films will be made available to view in any order, or even individually.
For the curated experience our Transgender Screening Committee
designed, we suggest the following event/viewing order:
• Pre Recorded Centering Video
• Out Loud
• Transgender Day of Remembrance Vigil Video
• Pier Kids
• Keyboard Fantasies
• I Was Not Born A Mistake
• Live Transgender Healing Space 11/22 @7PM EST
OUT LOUD chronicles the first season of the historic
Trans Chorus of Los Angeles, the largest group of transgender
and gender nonconforming people anywhere in the world who regularly
Led by Lindsey Deaton, who co-founded the chorus and served
as its first artistic director, these choristers, many of whom
have no musical training, come together to hone their craft
and find their voices.
Some choristers have the added challenge of coping with changes
to their vocal range as they take hormones to transition. The
stakes are high for all as they prepare for their 2016 public
concert debut in this inspiring story of an extraordinary choir.
