Human Rights Film Series - Event Poster 26/02

The Human Rights Law Centre is re-launching its Human Rights Film Series! This is a student-led initiative that aims to show engaging and provocative films that bring challenging human rights issues to life.In honour of LGBTQIA+ History month, we are screening ‘The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson’ at 17:30, 26 February in Clive Granger A40. This documentary highlights the circumstances surrounding the untimely death of noted gay liberation activist, Marsha P. Johnson. The screening will be followed by an open discussion to promote an understanding of the issues depicted in the film.

Marsha's involvement in the gay liberation movement and her prominent role in the Stonewall riots is often overlooked, as has been the activism of many trans and black advocates for LGBTQ+ rights throughout movement's history. The film also places a spotlight on the violence perpetrated against members of the trans community and highlights the failure of police and other authorities to properly investigate these crimes.

This screening is only open to students and staff at the University of Nottingham.
