Pittsburgh Film Screening: In the Wrong Body

June 09, 2016 at 6pm - 9pm

Come join the Party for Socialism and Liberation for a FREE film screening and discussion on the Cuban documentary 'In the Wrong Body'.

A brief description of the film:

"The groundbreaking Cuban film “In the Wrong Body” (En El Cuerpo Equivocado) made its United States premiere recently. The 2010 documentary — by Cuban filmmaker Marilyn Solaya — chronicles the story of Mavi Susel, the first transgender woman to receive a sex reassignment operation in Cuba in 1988.

Mavi’s stigmatization as a youth, the pain of discrimination and abuse, is common for the transgender community. Cuba’s revolution has made enormous gains for the people, including free healthcare and education. Now, in recent years, Cuba is also carrying out a public campaign against homophobia, and for respect for LGBTQ diversity. In Cuba, all trans healthcare procedures, including sex-reassignment operations, are free.

The film is a heartwarming and inspiring documentary and helps to enlighten viewers of the urgent need to oppose LGBTQ oppression and all forms of discrimination."

 

All are welcome to join! There will be a brief discussion after the screening as well. Feel free to invite friends.
