Documentary Screening: TransLatina

An Exclusive Washington, DC Premiere, presented by Latin@s en Acción!

(English below)

Más de tres años de producción, más de cien horas de rodaje y entrevistas con personas de quince nacionalidades hacen que TransLatina sea una inquietante exposición de la realidad que enfrentan las personas transgénero en América Latina.

Los testimonios de activistas, profesionales de la salud, personas de autoridades y personas transgénero recogidos en TransLatina muestran un mundo de exclusión, perseverancia y esperanza.

More than three years in production, more than one hundred hours of filming and interviews with people of fifteen nationalities make TransLatina a thought-provoking depiction of the realities confronted by transgender people in Latin America.

The testimonies of activists, health professionals, experts and transgender people collected in TransLatina show a world of exclusion, perseverance and hope.

Thursday, June 10 2010.
5:00pm – 9:00pm
The DC Center
1810 14th St NW WDC

New Know Your Rights Booklets Released

After a lot of work, we finally have finished the latest version of our Know Your Rights pamphlets! These include updates on the latest policies we have won at the DC jails, police, public schools and homeless shelters, as well as a more thorough list of local resources and more details on how to file a complaint.

There are two versions – one with the full text of the human rights regulations, and a shorter one that just has our explanation of the law. Please, print these off and distribute them! You can also obtain copies directly from us.

We have also been increasing the number of KYR workshops we’ve been giving to various LGB,  trans and gender nonconforming communities. So far, we’ve presented our newest workshops at HIPS, SMYAL and GLSEN. (That’s a lot of acronyms!) Let us know if you’re interested in bringing us to hang out with your group!

Las traducciones de nuestras libros “Personas Transgénero y Transexual: ¡Tiene derechos!” vienen pronto.
