The Southern Film Festival Presents "Gender Revolution"
James Branch Cabell Library, Third Floor Lecture Hall (Room 303)
901 Park Ave., Richmond, Va. 23284
A screening of the documentary Gender Revolution, part of the 2017 Southern Film Festival: Screening Southern Justice.
Gender and sexuality can be fluid, and today transgender issues are altering the nature of day-to-day interactions. Newscasting legend Katie Couric takes us on a journey to discover the dynamics of gender in our world, and promotes understanding the personal and the political issues behind the headlines. Gender Revolution includes interviews with activists, doctors, families and individuals, and it highlights Virginia native Gavin Grimm, a transgender student whose case is currently in the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals.
Following the screening, Gavin Grimm and Bill Farrar of Virginia ACLU join us for a discussion.
