Event Details

Join the Trans* Lounge and the Center’s Senior Services as we present our 2nd Annual “Brunch and a Movie”! We will celebrate the rich history of our trans community with the celebrated documentary “Southern Comfort” (90 Min, Closed Caption Available). Kate Davis's award-winning doc chronicles the powerful story of the final four seasons in the life of Robert Eads, a trans man dying of ovarian cancer in rural Georgia. We will start with a lovely brunch (vegan & gluten-free options available) and beverages(alcoholic & soft) in the Village Courtyard at 11 AM and adjourn into the beautiful Renberg Theatre at 12:15 PM for the screening. Stick around following the film for a thoughtful talkback session. 


We will get things started with brunch-style faire (vegan & gluten-free options available) and mimosas (ID’s will be checked!) at 11 AM with the screening at 12:30 PM. Stick around after the movie for a fun and exciting talkback session to discuss the movie and your thoughts about it.

Organizer

Trans* Lounge

The Trans Lounge is a trailblazing new series of educational and empowerment workshops, labs, events and groups aimed at serving the needs of all transgender individuals in all aspects of their journey toward self-discovery and acceptance.

Trans Lounge programming will include: make-up classes, hairstyling classes, voice-feminization labs, coming out groups, trans-related legal workshops, personal growth and empowerment workshops, community building networking events, issue-driven discussion labs and other many other events, all of which are relevant to all aspects of the trans community.

How will the Trans Lounge work?
Unlike other education and empowerment themed programs, the Trans Lounge will depend upon its participants to determine and guide which programming is offered. To accomplish this, participants must first register as a member of the Trans Lounge by visiting our online hub at TransLounge.org. Becoming a member of the Trans Lounge is free to all trans-identified individuals who wish to join. 


Once registered, Trans Lounge member will have access to the Trans Lounge Members Only area within the Center’s website. That is where members will find descriptions and information about our library free workshops, labs groups and events. Once there, members are asked to review all of the various programs and rate them all based on their level of interest. Member’s interest rating options will range from: “Not Interested”, “Maybe/Maybe Not”, “Moderately Interested”, to “Very Interested – Sign Me Up.” Trans Lounge administrators will monitor all the member ratings and will use this data to determine which programs will be scheduled in order to meet the membership’s greatest needs and interests.

At this point, administrators will contact the instructors to schedule those programs that the membership has expressed the greatest interest in. Programming dates/times will be determined based on instructor’s availability as well as the member’s availability guidelines (which they are asked to provide as part of the registration process). Once a program has been scheduled, those members who expressed the highest level of interest will be given first priority to RSVP/enroll in the program. Once those members have had time to RSVP (72-hours), the entire membership will be informed about the program and all other members will be able to enroll until the program reaches its enrollment maximum.

All workshops and labs will be programmed in this manner, so to ensure strong attendance and maximum utilization of what each program has to offer for the membership. This also ensures that our instructors will enjoy presenting their programs for optimal sized audiences.

In addition, the Trans Lounge will also present on-going social and support groups and short-term, topic-driven salons. Groups and salons will include: coming out to self, coming out to the one’s we love, living with HIV-AIDS, embracing your femininity/masculinity, embracing faith, how to love and support the non-trans people we love and support, how T can build community with LGB people, etc.
