Join local charities SAYiT and Ashiana as they mark LGBT+ History Month with a screening of Major!
Major! is a documentary film exploring the life and campaigns of Miss Major Griffin-Gracy, a formerly incarcerated Black transgender elder and activist who has been fighting for the rights of trans women of colour for over 40 years. Miss Major is a veteran of the Stonewall Rebellion and a survivor of Attica State Prison, a former sex worker, an elder, a community leader, and human rights activist. She is simply "Mama" to many in her community. Miss Major's personal story and activism for transgender civil rights intersects LGBT struggles for justice and equality from the 1960s to today.
SAYiT is a Sheffield charity for LGBT+ young people, and Ashiana is a service for Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic and Refugee women, young people and children affected by abuse.
Refreshments from 6:30pm, screening starts 7pm, pizza and discussion till 9pm.
