CHRISTOPHER'S CHRONICLES & TRAPPINGS OF TRANSHOOD, co-presented by Dragon's Blood Rising, Fresh Meat, the Transgender Law Center, SF Transgender Film Festival, and Gender Reel
Christopher's Chronicles was among the very first films made by/about a transgender man of color.  It premiered at the 1997 Frameline Festival, and went on to screen at LGBT film festivals nationally.  ImageOut, the Rochester LGBT FIlm and Video Festival, described Christopher's Chronicles as "a warm and engaging look at the fears and realities that must be faced and conquered in order for Christopher's female-to-male sex reassignment to be a success. Christopher is a joyous example of the sense of liberation felt by those who know they must change their gender and are able to undertake the daunting yet liberating tasks necessary for their transformation to take place."

Trappings of Transhood is one of the first documentaries on FTMs (female-to-male transsexuals) of color and butch women of color.

These movie screenings are part of a tribute for Christopher Lee on the one year anniversary of his passing.  Christopher was a fierce two-spirit being.  A leading activist of the local transgender community, he served as (the first FTM) Grand Marshal of San Francisco's 2002 LGBT Pride Parade.  An award-winning filmmaker, Christopher co-founded "Tranny Fest," the world's first transgender cultural festival.  Now called the San Francisco Transgender Film Festival, it stands as a powerful testament to his legacy.
