A film director and an author will visit UMaine this month to discuss transgender issues.
The University of Maine’s Rainbow Resource Center and the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Allies Council will host Jennifer Finney Boylan, author of “She’s Not There: A Life in Two Genders” and Mark Schoen, producer of the new documentary “Trans.”
Boylan, who is also a Colby College professor, will speak from 3–4 p.m. Thursday, March 21 in the Bangor Room of the Memorial Union. She will discuss life as a transgender woman as well as her new book, “Stuck in the Middle with You.”
Schoen will attend a screening of his film “Trans” at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 28 in 100 D.P. Corbett Business Building. He will also host a question-and-answer session after the screening from 8–9 p.m. The movie looks into the personal journey into the transgender world through the characters and their life stories.
Both events are free and open to the public.
