The Ossining Documentary & Discussion Series Screening of MAJOR!

Miss Major’s extraordinary life and personal story is one of resilience and celebration. While mainstream gay rights and marriage equality dominate the headlines, Miss Major’s life is a testament to the fierce survivalism and every day concerns of transgender women of color, who so often live in the margin of the already marginalized.  MAJOR! Is the story of one woman’s journey, a community’s history, and how caring for each other can be a revolutionary act. Panelists: Cole Rivers: Writer/Spoken word artist, Community Activist. Cole  is an innovative writer, spoken word performance artist, and a community activist, focusing on supporting youth in the arts. He is also a leader in the local SGI Buddhist Organization, which focuses on fostering capable young people in today’s society. He identifies as transgender and uses He/Him/His pronouns. Brendon L. Scholl: Ossining High School SAGA (Sexuality And Gender Acceptance) member.  Brendon is a very active member of the local LGBTQ community and Ossining High School's SAGA (Sexuality And Gender Acceptance). They’ve worked with the Trevor Project for a mini-documentary about art, being LGBTQ, and the connection between the two as well as attending the annual Prideworks at Pace.  Brendon looks forward to continuing a dialogue for LGBTQ youth.
