For Employees, By Employees.

Each year, LCC participates in Transgender Awareness Week to help raise the visibility of transgender and gender-nonconforming people as well as address the issues the community faces. You're invited to learn, celebrate, and support the community! 

Transgender Awareness Week is a one-week celebration leading up to Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) on November 20th each year, which memorializes victims of transphobic violence. 

Join us all week long for our virtual events! 
Events are open to all students, faculty, staff and the community.

Virtual Film & Discussion
11:30 am - 1:30 pm

Get your popcorn and join us on Zoom for a live film and discussion session! We will watch the movie together and have an opportunity to not only see each other but also discuss it live through the chat. After the movie, we will discuss our main takeaways and reactions. 

About the Movie:  
This 2017 award-winning documentary tells the transformative story of Matt, a bodybuilder, world-record power-lifter, cancer survivor, father of three teenage sons, and former U.S. Marine, as he transitions into a woman, now known as Janae.  “Transformer” beautifully captures the process of Janae crafting her own sense of femininity, unique to who she was and who she continues to be. Winner of an Audience Award at the Hot Docs International Documentary Festival and a Feature Documentary Award at the Austin Film Festival. Filmmaker: Michael Del Monte. Features: Janae Marie Kroczaleski.
