HRC Arkansas Hosts Transgender Advocate Miss Major

Recently, HRC Arkansas hosted a panel at the Kaleidoscope Film Festival to discuss the documentary film “Major!” directed by Annalise Ophelian. The film focuses on the incredible life and legacy of longtime leader and trans elder, Miss Major Griffin-Gracy, one of the most important living LGBTQ activists in our history. Miss Major, as she is affectionately known, participated in the Stonewall Riots that launched the modern LGBTQ equality movement, learned the importance of prison reform from the leaders of the Attica prison riots, worked to combat the AIDS crisis of the 80s and 90s and led the Transgender, Gender Variant, Intersex Justice Project.
