Framing Agnes

Directed By Chase Joynt, Kristen Schilt
In the late 1950s, a woman named Agnes approached the UCLA Medical Center seeking sex reassignment surgery. Her story was long considered to be exceptional and singular until never-before-seen case files of other patients were found in 2017. Watch as preeminent trans culture-makers of our time breathe new life into those who redefined gender in the midcentury. Starring Zackary Drucker (Transparent), Angelica Ross (Pose), Silas Howard (By Hook or By Crook), and Max Wolf Valerio (The Testosterone Files).

In My Mother's Closet
Directed by Adri Almeida & Carolyn Wu
In My Mother's Closet' explores the intersections of being brown, trans, and a woman. Through song, Adri reconciles the struggle of wanting to belt out her truth while not wanting to risk her relationship with her religious mother. With the support of her best friend, she perseveres.

Missed Connections
Directed by Brandon Ho
Two strangers meet and form a bond at a festival, but they forget to exchange contact info. As they search for one another in the real world, their posts go viral, as they navigate their careers, lives, and society╩╝s expectations of them as Black, female, and transgender. An LGBT love story.
