Transgender Day of Remembrance Events

Human RightS Initiative in collaboration with the Spectrum LGBTIQ+ Club would like to invite you to events in commemoration of the International Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR). We will start with a brief TDOR introductory speech on the CEU rooftop addressing the issue of trans vulnerability and transphobia motivated crimes. We continue with the memorialization of those who we lost to anti-transgender violence in the past year. This will be followed by a film screening of Children of Srikandi.

About the movie:
This is the first film about queer women in Indonesia. This collective anthology transcends the borders between documentary, fiction and experimental film. The moving individual stories are interwoven with the tale of Srikandi, an ancient mythological character of the Mahabharata and well-known Indian epic, which is still frequently used in the traditional Javanese shadow puppet theatre plays (wayang kulit). Srikandi changes gender to live and fight as an equal among men, is the inspiration and role model for this anthology of stories on the state of alternate sexualities in Indonesia. The result is eight highly personal and profound perspectives on lesbian, bisexual and trans-identity life in Islamic Indonesia.
