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.
