2007 Tucson Transgender Awareness Week Planning Documents

Subject

Transgender Awareness Week, Southern Arizona Gender Alliance, Trans-Latino Movie Night

Description

This document is in two parts. The first part is a rough calendar schedule of the 2007 Tucson Transgender Awareness Week. It has only about half of the events listed that would be eventually included as part of the week's events. There are question marks after many ideas, marking them as tentative or suggestions. There is a note about red-colored text being tentative, but the document did not print with the red ink. There is also a list of suggested events to add, depending on who they could bring in. The fact that they were still considering whether or not to call in Dean Spade, who lives in another state, tells me that this was a planning document produced many months before November 2007, but there is no date.

The second part of this document is a list of movies simply titled "New TG/TS Films." After reading through the films, it seems that almost all of them regard transgender identity and expression in non-white cultures. These were probably the movies that SAGA reviewed in part of a suggested event on the previous page: "Trans people of color (Brown Bag? Film? Play Reading?") Knowing that ultimately SAGA decided to have a Trans-Latino movie night, one of the latinx-focused movies on this list may have been the film shown. No other document specifies what film was actually shown.
