Though transgender rights and acceptance have made significant strides over the years, the country is still filled with misinformation and fear-mongering around trans Americans. Case in point is President Trump's ban on transgender Americans serving in the military. In order to combat that hysteria, witness the personal stories about trans people in the documentary series America in Transition. A film screening at Alphabet City will present episode four of the series called "Where is my Refuge?" The episode follows the story of Nina Chaubal, originally born in India, and her journey with her partner across rural America, connecting trans people and providing suicide prevention services. Chaubal will lead a discussion following the screening. The event is part of Reel Q: Pittsburgh’s International LGBTQ Film Festival and is free, but registration is required.
