Passport: Movies and Royals Shine at LA’s First TransNation Festival

The TransNation Festival launched its premiere edition in Los Angeles this weekend, merging a slate of excellent trans-themed films from Thursday to Sunday with the celeb-studded Queen USA pageant on Saturday evening.

Guest-curated and hosted by artist Zackary Drucker, the fest’s film portion included both brand-new releases (like the documentaries Major!, profiling trans-rights pioneer Miss Major Griffin-Gracy, and Free CeCe, tracking the incarceration and subsequent activism of CeCe McDonald) and classics (including the groundbreaking 1968 pageant-doc The Queen, and the rarely seen 1974 Rainer Werner Fassbinder masterpiece In a Year with 13 Moons). Screenings were at Cinefamily in the West Hollywood-adjacent Fairfax District.
