Join NewFest, BAM, and Autostraddle for a conversation with critics and filmmakers about a genre all too absent from trans cinema: rom-coms.
NewFest, BAM, and Autostraddle discuss the lack of trans rom-coms in this free panel conversation!
Panelists will discuss the few films that do exist, what’s upcoming, and why we need so much more. What message does it send when this genre of romance, humor, and fantasy is kept from an entire group of people? It’s time for trans people to kiss in the rain and run through the airport. It’s time for trans people to tell our love stories.
