2012 SW Gay & Lesbian Film Festival

Free Film & Panel Discussion:

Transgender Tuesdays / The Past & Future of Transgender Health

Saturday, September 29, 2:30PM At The Southwest Film Center

Transgender people have been an overlooked population in almost every area of public and private life. And when we are not invisible, we are overtly discriminated against. While this is true for many facets of living, access to high quality, compassionate health care presents one of the great obstacles for trans advocates and activists. The panel will talk about the film, as well as the state of health care for transgender people in New Mexico.

Panelists include: Adrien Lawyer, Terry Schleder and Janice Devereaux
