To commemorate the 2016 International Day of Solidarity with Trans Prisoners, join us for a screening of the film Criminal Queers on Monday, January 25. The screening will be followed by a discussion about how to connect with local anti-police, anti-prison and prisoner solidarity work.
Criminal Queers visualizes a radical trans/queer struggle against the prison industrial complex and toward a world without walls. Remembering that prison breaks are both a theoretical and material practice of freedom, this film imagines what spaces might be opened up if crowbars, wigs, and metal files become tools for transformation. Follow Yoshi, Joy, Susan and Lucy as they fiercely read everything from the Human Rights Campaign and hate crimes legislation to the non-profitization of social movements. Criminal Queers grows our collective liberation by working to abolish the multiple ways our hearts, genders, and desires are confined. (directed by Chris Vargas & Eric A. Stanley, 2015)
