More about the film:
Writer and director Sydney Freeland was born and raised on a Navajo reservation in Gallup, New Mexico—dubbed “Drunktown.” The disconnect between her experiences and the media’s portrayal of reservation life compelled her to create last year’s Sundance success, Drunktown’s Finest. The narrative feature offers not one, but three harrowing interwoven tales of loss and triumph at or around a reservation in Drunktown. Felixia, a trans woman, pursues a spot in the “women of the tribe” calendar. Sick Boy confronts violence and drug abuse. Nizhoni seeks out her past, well after being adopted by a white family. At its core, the film represents the ongoing search for identity and Freeland’s desire to more honestly portray reservation life.
This film is not to be missed! Don’t miss out!

Nope, that’s not a headline from the Onion satirical newspaper. Sadly, it really happened.
Memories Pizza, the Indiana restaurant that said it would refuse to cater gay weddings under the state’s controversial religious freedom law, has raised more than $800,000 from supporters.
Can you imagine how much impact the trans justice movement could have if we could also raise that kind of money in a matter of days?
