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.

The events are free and open to all, but please register. Parking is available for a fee in the West Broad StreetWest Main Street and West Cary Street parking decks. For more information, please contact the VCU Libraries Events Office at 804-828-0593.
