Film Screening and Discussion: Call Her Ganda

Date: October 28
Time: 7-9 p.m.
Location: Eventive. Reserve your free ticket here.

When Jennifer Laude, a Filipina trans woman, is brutally murdered by a U.S. Marine, three women intimately invested in the case-an activist attorney, a transgender journalist and Jennifer’s mother-galvanize a political uprising, pursuing justice and taking on hardened histories of US imperialism.

All are welcome to participate in this documentary screening and conversation exploring gender and justice, gender-based violence, and the experiences of transgender people in the context of U.S. militarism and imperialism in the Philippines.
