Filmmaker Annalise Ophelian documents the revolutionary life Miss Major Griffin-Gracy, an extraordinary activist who has fought for transgender rights for 40 years. From participating in the Stonewall riots fighting for liberation, to her promotion of HIV rights for the disenfranchised in the 1990s, through her efforts to stop the daily threat of violence for transgender women in prison, Miss Major has spent a lifetime on the frontlines of activism. As this documentary portrait reveals, not only is Griffin-Gracy a tireless activist, but she is also a warm, feisty, funny, and no surprise – very opinionated – unique woman suffused with an endearing spirit. MAJOR! has been embraced by audiences and festival judges alike – taking both the audience award at Outfest and a special jury mention for its “depiction of undying activism.” Come discover for yourself this fascinating, unique, inspiring individual.
