"Afuera": Film Screening and Discussion

The 2017-18 Campus Community Book Project, featuring Janet Mock's Redefining Realness: My Path to Womanhood, Identity, Love & So Much More, invites you to a screening of the film Afuera (2016, 15 min.). This event is free and open to the public.

Afuera is a short film, directed by Steven Liang, that unfolds the hidden narratives of trans Latinas. This film centers Jennifer, an undocumented trans Latina, who relies on sex work for income, which is common amongst trans women. This film will hopefully spark much needed conversations which can include the following: sex worker rights and protection, resources and jobs for the trans community, undocumented status within the trans Latinx community, violence trans women of color face on the streets, combating toxic masculinity (machismo) and transantagonism within the Chicanx/Latinx community, and more. The discussions held post film will end with how the Chicanx/Latinx community can be better supporters for the trans (and undocumented) community.
