Northwest Premiere!

 

MAJOR! explores the life and campaigns of black transgender elder and activist Miss Major Griffin-Gracy. Commonly known as “Mama,” she has been fiercely advocating for her girls—trans women of color who have survived police brutality and incarceration in men’s prisons—for over 40 years. A veteran of the Stonewall Rebellion, a survivor of Attica State Prison, and a former sex worker, Miss Major is a living library of the queer rights movement. Both a condemnation of the prison-industrial complex and a historical portrait of diverse LGBT communities, MAJOR! uses first-person narration and innovative storytelling to personalize this vibrant and charismatic woman with love and humor. 

Contains adult themes and language and mention of rape.

Co-presented by the Pride FoundationPOCAAN, and Sistah Sinema.

Please join us for the Opening Night Party at Saint John's immediately following the film! (719 E. Pike Street.)
