Join HRC and the DC Area Transmasculine Society (DCATS) to view the award-winning film, A Year in Transition, written and produced by trans director Lorne Clarkson who will join us by video to answer questions.
A Year in Transition follows a 20-year-old Arab-American transgender man in his first year of transition as he comes out, begins taking hormones, goes through gender affirmation surgery, and finds his own place in the trans community. The film is based out of Ypsilanti, MI and includes other transmasculine people in the Metro Detroit area. A Year in Transition is unique in that it shows a positive story of transition and has a transgender director at the helm. (70 minutes)
