ROYAL OAK – The Michigan Coalition for Human Rights will show a PBS film titled “Growing Up Trans” Nov. 3 in its Fall Film Series at St. John’s Episcopal Church located at 26998 Woodward Ave. in Royal Oak. Post-viewing discussion will be facilitated by Rachel Crandall, co-founder of Transgender Michigan, and Lui Francesco, a trans-catholic rights activist.
The film, “Growing Up Trans,” interviews transgender children and their families who were willing to share stories of the struggles and choices they faced as they considered transitioning. Crandall and Francesco will localize the film by discussing the issues that transgender people face at all ages, including the recent trans violence here in Detroit.
The film will begin at 7 p.m. A donation of $5 is suggested for all showings in the film festival.
