Description


Dear Friends,

This is your chance to watch the award-winning indie doc My Name Was January in the heart of Surrey at the iconic City Centre Library!

My Name Was January has won 13 international jury awards and garnered 44 official selections at film festivals around the world.

SYNOPSIS

When a trans sister, January Marie Lapuz, is brutally murdered in her own home in New Westminster, BC, her community reacts and her friends and other trans women of colour come to share and voice their issues, concerns, and challenges. January was seen as a bright light in the lives of many. This is the story of January, a friend, a daughter, a person. This film will not only bring justice to January, but to all the women who have lost their lives. January had a beautiful soul, and now part of her soul rests in each and every one of us.
