Congrats to 'MAJOR!,' October's Project of the Month!

Congratulations to “MAJOR!” director Annalise Ophelian!
The project received the most votes to win August’s Project of the Month.
The prize is a creative consultation and Tribeca Film Institute.

Here’s a look at the film’s pitch:

This is the story of one woman’s journey, a community’s history, and how caring for one another can be a revolutionary act.

Miss Major Griffin-Gracy is a Black transgender woman, a formerly
incarcerated person, a former sex worker, an elder, a community leader,
and an internationally-recognized human rights activist. From the 1969
Stonewall Rebellion to her current work as Executive Director of the
Transgender GenderVariant Intersex Justice Project (TGIJP), she’s worked
tirelessly for transgender rights for over 40 years. MAJOR! explores
her story, and takes audiences on a journey through LGBT history.
