Girl Inside follows a 26-year-old during her three-year transition from male to female. The film raises issues about the nature of gender, femininity, and sexuality in a sometimes funny, sometimes painful, exploration of what it means to be a woman. (70 minutes)
Post-film discussion with Joann Guidos, whose own experience as a transgendered woman is chronicled in Nine Lives (this year's Tulane Reading Project book), and with Wesley Ware, director of BreakOUT, a group that fights the criminalization of LGBTQ youth who are directly impacted by the criminal or juvenile justice system in New Orleans. Moderated by Mimi Schippers, associate professor of sociology and gender & sexuality studies.
Free and open to the public, with a reception to follow.
Co-sponsored by the Newcomb College Institute’s Feminist Film Series, the Tulane Reading Project, and the Howard-Tilton Memorial Library.
