Event Details

TransVisible: Bamby Salcedo's Story - A Film by Dante Alencastre

TransVisible: Bamby Salcedo's Story is a documentary on the life of renowned Los Angeles-based Trans Latina Activist and leader, Bamby Salcedo. Turning her daunting personal challenges and barriers into the very basis of her activism, the film follows her unlikely and transcendent rise into becoming the effective social advocate and role model that she is today. Her work is shown giving voice and visibility not only to the Transgender community, but also to the multiple, overlapping communities (Latina, immigrant, HIV+, youth, and LGBT) her life has touched.

Co-sponsored by QUNY.

Dante Alencastre was born in Lima, Peru and emigrated to the U.S. in 1976. He graduated from Columbia University in 1983 with a BA in French Literature and Drama. He is a filmmaker who has worked on numerous projects, including two short films, cable television programs, and a magazine covering the culture of Amsterdam. When he returned to the U.S., he created a documentary about the situation of the LGBT community in his native Peru titled EN FIRE (2007), which had its world premiere at Outfest in Los Angeles on July 14, 2007. After getting international awards, he began working on a new documentary about activism in Peru, The Fire Within (2011), which premiered in Los Angeles, New York, and Outfest-Peru.

CLAGS: Center for LGBTQ Studies

The Center for LGBTQ Studies provides a platform for intellectual leadership in addressing issues that affect Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender individuals and other sexual and gender minorities. As the first university-based LGBTQ research center in the United States, CLAGS nurtures cutting-edge scholarship, organizes colloquia for examining and affirming LGBTQ lives, and fosters network-building among academics, artists, activists, policy makers, and community members. CLAGS stands committed to maintaining a broad program of public events, online projects, and fellowships that promote reflection on queer pasts, presents, and futures. CLAGS makes its home at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York.

CLAGS's efforts to promote an academy where homophobia, sexism, racism, and classism are studied and not enacted depend on the generosity of our members. The basic membership rate of $40 ($20 for students or individuals with limited income) includes advanced notification of all public events and a subscription to our biannual newsletter. Members also receive free admission to all CLAGS conferences.
