Framing Agnes

7th of May, University of Edinburgh campus.

UoE Staff Pride & Queer Film Night are partnering to show you Framing Agnes on campus.

In 1958, a young trans woman named Agnes entered a study about sex disorders at UCLA to get the gender-affirming care she needed, by any means necessary. Her story was long considered to be exceptional until never-before-seen case files of other patients were found in 2017. Directed by Chase Joynt (NO ORDINARY MAN) and featuring an all-star cast of transgender artists and performers, FRAMING AGNES uses re-enactment and genre-blurring storytelling techniques to breathe new life into previously unknown people who redefined gender in the midcentury. Featuring Angelica Ross, Jen Richards, Zackary Drucker, Silas Howard, Max Wolf Valerio, and Stephen Ira.

The film will be followed by a discussion with Jules from Queer Film Night and members of Staff Pride Network.
The film will be closed-captioned and the room is wheelchair accessible. Tickets in bio!

If you have any accessibility needs or concerns please DM Queer Film Night @queer_film_night or send us an email.

Your donations help us pay for screening fees so we can continue to show you independent queer films monthly.
