"Transgender Tuesdays" Film Screening

They came for the hormones, they stayed for the healthcare. 

Tuesday September 15th join us for a screening of Transgender Tuesdays, a documentary about the first public health clinic in the country to provide healthcare to transgender patients. Transgender folks have been historically underserved, and usually mistrusted the health care system, often facing life- and-death situations without any help. But 20 years ago a team of HIV healthcare providers and trans activists at a clinic in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood opened the country’s first Primary Care clinic specifically for transgendered people. The narratives of these 12 pioneering patients reveal some harrowing places they have been, as well as a sense of victory and hope for the future. Director Mark Freeman in attendance!

Reception at 6pm, Screening at 6:30pm
$5 (includes museum admission)
