Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Pride Month is celebrated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising. Stonewall is considered the turning point of the Gay Liberation Movement, which sought to move beyond the social stigma and shame of the queer experience, and instead celebrate queer identity as a point of pride. This year, to celebrate, we have decided to spend a few week highlighting specific cultural experiences within the queer community to showcase the variety of stories within this large rainbow umbrella.
This week we wish to celebrate the Trans Queer experience by highlighting these select films. Happy Pride, y’all!
