About the film:
Filmed over the course of five years, Becoming Johanna is a portrait of a teen-aged transgender Latina who faces bullying at school and misunderstanding at home. When she gets kicked out of her school and then her home for standing up for herself, she finds a loving foster family and a sympathetic alternative high school principal who helps her to grow into the beautiful young woman she was meant to be.

La película: Becoming Johanna
Filmado en el transcurso de cinco años, Becoming Johanna es un retrato de una latina transgénero adolescente que enfrenta acoso en la escuela y una familia que no comprende su identidad.

The Science of Gender

Presented by Linden Jordan (PFLAG Skagit) at Science on Tap at the Kiggins Theatre in Vancouver, WA on Aug 14, 2019

In this video, you will learn that chromosomes can vary widely with variations in results and why it is not useful to speak of sex and gender as the same entities. Sharing about fetal development and the many variations that occur that directly impact one's anatomy and one's sense of self where gender is concerned, this presentation will give new meaning to the words gender, transgender, gender fluid, intersex, and queer.
