Thursday, May 28 at 6 p.m. – WE EXIST: A Documentary Beyond the Binary
Planned Parenthood’s Teen Council invite you to a virtual screening of the film, We Exist: A Documentary Beyond the Gender Binary. Join us for after the film screening for a panel discussion beginning at 7:15 pm with the filmmakers, stars, and community-members of all ages who identify as non-binary or allies.
About the film: What if the world told you that you do not exist? For many gender non-confirming individuals this is the reality. The impact of that reality is both personal and global: invisibility, silencing, systemic discrimination and exclusion, and the denial of the most fundamental human right–the legal right to exist. Despite these extraordinarily rigid conditions, personal determination and social agency prevail. The narrative intimately follows the life of Lauren: a person in their mid-twenties who identifies as gender neutral. Lauren’s story chronicles their life across multiple continents capturing the emotional, physical, and mental changes and obstacles Lauren must face just to be. From leaving a promising basketball career to a near-death experience in the depths of the rainforest, Lauren’s journey is transformative and unique, yet parallels the tale of so many around the world.
Please RSVP here. Registered participants will receive more information via email.
We look forward to seeing you at one or more of these events!
