Tribute To Christopher Lee
Christopher Lee was a groundbreaking and transgressive filmmaker whose work touched many lives. His films TRAPPINGS OF TRANSHOOD and ALLEY OF THE TRANNY BOYS (both of which will be screened in this program) were just part of his varied résumé he was co-founder of Tranny Fest (which evolved into the San Francisco Transgender Film Festival) and also the first FTM grand marshall of the San Francisco LGBT Pride Parade. Devoting his energy to art and activism alike, he is remembered by his many friends and peers as a unifying force in the trans community, and his films resonate as boldly honest and fearless documentation of trans identity and sexuality. His tragic death by suicide at the age of 48 took him from us all too soon, but his work as a filmmaker and as a political force will continue to have an impact in the decades to come.
