The Movie "Trans" will be at the Starplex Cinemas in Berlin for one night only
DATE: Thursday, October 17, 2013
$10.00 General Contributions accepted
TRANS is an extraordinary documentary feature about men and women … and all the variations in between. It is about the Transgender Community, perhaps the most misunderstood and mistreated minority in America and around the world. Inspired by the incredible story of Dr. Christine McGinn and her important work as a transgender surgeon, TRANS provides an up-close and very personal vision into the lives, loves, and challenges of a remarkable cast of characters of all ages and from all walks of life.
These are the stories of confusion and courage, excitement and emotion that have never been told - until now. To anyone who ever looked in a mirror and wondered, “who they really are?” TRANS asks another question…”are you brave enough to find out?"

After the movie, you are invited to stay for a visit with: Members of TransPACT, parents of transgender children (and host for this evening's program); Tony Ferraiolo, co-founder of the Jim Collins
TransPACT, a local support group for parents of transgender kids, is proud to bring TRANS to Connecticut for this special, one-night-only event! Whether you are well-versed in transgender issues, or a newbie to this topic, the film TRANS, which features personal stories of transgender people across the country, will inform, touch, and inspire you. Our special guest, Mark Schoen, is the producer of TRANS and will be on hand to answer your questions on the making of this landmark production.
This event is also a fundraiser for the Jim Collins Foundation, which raises money to fund gender-confirming surgeries for those who need surgery to live a healthy life, but have no ability to pay for it themselves. Co-founder of the JCF, Tony Ferraiolo, will also be at the screening to answer any questions about this worthy cause, or about the support groups for transgender youth that he runs here in Connecticut. When you purchase your ticket, you will be given a option to donate to the Jim Collins Foundation. Please consider giving to this life-affirming organization.
