NINA by Rolmar Baldonado. Australia. 10 mins.
yearns to be a special girl and to meet the man of her dreams.
But life for this Filipino transsexual in Sydney is filled with
isolation and displacement. NINA is a truly courageous and
moving portrait of Noni Benito reflecting on four years of living in
Australia through her journey of transformation.

KE KULANA HE MAHU: REMEMBERING A SENSE OF PLACE:
Colonization, Sexuality, and Drag Queens in the land of "ALOHA"
by Kathryn Xian and Brent Anbe. US. 67 mins. 2002. The award-
winning documentary film takes us on a historical journey as
scholars and oral traditionalists illustrate what life and culture
was like in the Hawaiian islands for the Mahu (gender-variant
males with a feminine gender identity and presentation). The
journey also leads the audience through present day culture and
society to see first hand how colonization and modernization
have affected the spirits of Hawai'is people.
Our apologies for the delay and short notice!
We have rescheduled this event from February 29th owing to
problems with the space. Films must be returned to filmmakers
and distributors too, so we have finally secured a new venue.
Please let us know if you like this space. We also apologize for
not being able to screen Miss Manju Truck Driver. We have been
working across national boundaries to be able to screen the
films. We are hoping to screen the film in our future screenings.
Thank you and hope to see you there!

**Queens Pride House to host GLSEN/NYAGRA forum on transgender issues in
state safe schools legislation**
How can we make our schools safer for all students, including those who
are transsexual, transgendered or gender-variant?
Come join us for a forum on issues of gender identity & expression in
the New York State Dignity for All Students Act (DASA). The Dignity
bill, which is currently pending in the state legislature, would
prohibit discrimination and harassment in
public schools throughout the state based on actual or perceived race,
national origin, ethnic group, religion, sexual orientation, gender,
sex, or physical or mental disability. DASA is the first bill ever
introduced into the New York state legislature with
transgender-inclusive language (through a definition of gender that
includes gender identity and expression).
This will be the first public forum on DASA and on gender identity and
expression issues in the DASA bill held in the borough of Queens. The
forum is being sponsored by the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education
Network (GLSEN), the New York Association
for Gender Rights Advocacy (NYAGRA), SAGE/Queens (a program of Forest
Hills Community House), and Queens Pride House (a center for the LGBT
communities of Queens).
The forum will be hosted by Queens Pride House, at 67-03 Woodside Ave.
For directions, go to the QPH website or call Pride House. The event is
free & open to the public and will be held from 7-9 p.m. on Wednesday,
will be available.
