Beyond understanding what it means to be transgender and how it affects one’s life, trans awareness entails acceptance, openness, and advocacy. In partnership with the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) 22198 “Orgullo de San Antonio” and the Transgender Education Network of Texas, the Esperanza screens Peruvian filmmaker Dante Alencastre’s Transvisible
, a documentary chronicling the struggles of trans Latina activist Bamby Salcedo, founder and president of East L.A.’s [email protected]
Coalition. Following the screening, local trans activist Lauryn Farris moderates a panel discussion between Antonia Padilla, Eric LaRue and Salcedo herself.
