A partir de vendredi 11 janvier, la 1ère Edition du Festival de Films Trans de Paris, à découvrir sur trois jours, un programme réjouissant fait quasi exclusivement de raretés et d'inédits pour aborder d’importants enjeux : la construction de l’identité, le lien entre genre, corps et sexe, l’appartenance à une minorité, l’identité trans au sein des luttes queer et féministes, l’accès à l’emploi, l’immigration, l’activisme identitaire…
Au cinéma L'Archipel (17 bd de Strasbourg, Paris 10ème M° Strasbourg St-Denis) avec en invitée d'honneur Bambi.

Le Festival identit est né de la volonté de combler l’absence de représentations respectueuses de l’identité et de la culture trans.
