Join us for a reception and panel discussion accompanying the Museum of Transgender Hirstory & Art’s (MOTHA) film-screening series, Necessary Disguise: The Temporary Transvestite Film. Film critics, art historians, and queer academics will present on favorite and important films from the series, which range from Queen Christina to White Chicks. The panel will investigate the radical, reactionary, and recuperable aspects of this enduring Hollywood sub-genre. Co-presented by MOTHA and Art Practical.
