Film Screening: 'Little Miss Westie'

March 28, 2019, 7:00pm - 10:00pm

Little Miss Westie is a moving documentary following two transgender siblings, Ren (transgirl) and Luca (transboy), as they navigate puberty, school, dating, and family during the Trump era. Ren is competing in the Lil Miss Westie pageant as perhaps the first out transgirl, if she has the nerve to come out while on stage. Her older brother, Luca, coaches her on posing, make-up, and talent because he competed six years ago when he was living as a girl. A poignant and complex family portrait, Little Miss Westie challenges fundamental ideas about gender identity and parenting, while entertaining audiences as this tween and teen bicker, explore, and compete, all while coming of age.

 

The 64 Days of Nonviolence officially begins each year on January 30, the day Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated, and ends on April 4, the day we commemorate Dr. King. In our sixteenth annual observation of the 64 Days at Southern Connecticut State University, we continue to celebrate the peace and justice heritage in many of our cultures and heritages, including our observation of Black History Month, Women’s History Month, and Asian/Pacific Heritage Month.
