in the mourning is a look at the intersections between the grief and the joy that we experience as trans people. The way our grief holds our hands as we dance with joy. The filmmakers in this program beautifully showcase joy, sorrow, growth, and grief and honor all of it in each director’s voice. Let us hold space for the ones we have lost and the parts of ourselves we have lost as well as the joy that is coming, the love that is building, and the future that is yours.
