Across the country, it’s the same story: Issues that should matter most when our elected leaders gavel in for legislative session get ignored as some lawmakers continue to attack our transgender friends and neighbors.
We’re seeing it here in North Dakota, too.
From bills limiting access to education and denying life-affirming medical care to dictating which restrooms people can use and criminalizing families that affirm their children’s choices, there’s seemingly no end to the discriminatory rhetoric.
Frankie Gonzales-Wolfe knows this all too well. That’s why she ran to be the first openly elected transgender official in Texas. Follow her journey as she finds her voice, questions her relationship to community, and tries to win an election at the Fargo-Moorhead LGBT Film Festival screening of “A Run for More.”
But first, join the ACLU of North Dakota to meet the film's protagonist Frankie Gonzales-Wolfe for an informal discussion about the film and how we can move trans rights and quality forward right here in North Dakota and throughout the country.
- Thursday, Sept. 15, 5:15 to 6:30 p.m.
- Front Street Taproom, 614 Main Ave.
“A Run for More” film screening and festival program follows at 7 p.m. at the Fargo Theatre. Get tickets for the show from our friends at the Fargo-Moorhead LGBT Film Festival.
The humanity and dignity of trans people never be up for debate and “A Run for More” highlights the importance of fighting for trans rights at every level of society. Join us to start this important discussion in Fargo!
