Gender Reel's third annual PTHC film festival, Gender Reel presents…, will take place Saturday, June 14, 2014 from 2:20-3:40 PM at the Philadelphia Convention Center (Room 113A). This is Gender Reel's third consecutive year presenting at the conference. Gender Reel, will showcase four amazing films from its 2013 annual festival.

Films include:

Cover Up: What if you woke up one morning and found that glitter had spread across your face? What if you had to hide it? What if you were afraid? A group of queer youth made this video, “to call attention to the way people are marginalized even when no one is being explicit about it.

A Night in the Woods: This horror/fantasy short film explores the possibilities for alliance-building between and among communities of color, specifically between trans/genderqueer people and cis-non-transgender women.

Dating Sucks A Genderqueer Misadventure: The first episode in an animated documentary web-series about the successes, failures, and incredible confusion trying to date as a genderqueer/trans person.

When I Was A Boy I Was A Girl: Gogo is a transvestite in Belgrade. On her thirty-ninth birthday she decides to celebrate her coming-out on stage in front of a live audience, and so she tells them the story of her life: “When I was a boy, I was a girl."
