Support the TG Filmfest in Hollywood this Saturday!

Hey guys, here’s your chance to attend something pretty awesome this weekend. I think this is a really cool opportunity to support the community, check out some TG films, and just expand your mind and have a good time! For more info, go to their official website here!

The TG Film Fest was founded in 2009 as the Trans/Giving Film Festival by Trans/Giving organizer Kalil Cohen, with help from Trans/Giving co-organizers Ofelia del Corazon, Frankie Palacios, Kale Likover and Amy Daly, along with the donation of a theater by Farina Dary and the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services Alcohol and Drug Program Administration.

Since 2003, Trans/Giving has created a space for trans, genderqueer, and intersex artists to connect with audiences in southern California. Festival Director Kalil Cohen founded the TG Film Fest in 2009 with help from the Trans/Giving arts collective.
