Miss Major Taught Me: Two ways to connect with MAJOR!
MAJOR! chronicles the life and campaigns of Miss Major Griffin-Gracy, a 75 year old Black transgender elder and activist who has been fighting for the rights of trans women of color for over 40 years.
In 2016, MAJOR! was shown at over 60 film festivals around the world and garnered 20 awards for best documentary. Miss Major’s story offers us a roadmap for liberation, and we’re excited to announce the film is now available for educational licensing, as well as free of charge through our MAJOR! to the People campaign for community-based organizations working for social justice.

MAJOR! to the People: A free program for community-based groups
Our priority is to connect QTPOC communities and especially trans women of color around the United States and internationally with Miss Major’s story of resilience and resistance, and we’re seeking partnerships with community-based organizations working for social justice to help us make this happen.
In exchange for free access to the film and a donated copy for your organization, we’re asking that you work to make your screening free and accessible, and provide an opportunity to connect your viewing audience with local resources and services. This could include screenings at community centers, local theaters, or meeting spaces, as well as living room screenings to build social support. You can focus on just your membership, use the screening to help build your membership, or host a screening open to the public, as long as it’s free and accessible.
DVDs contain English/Spanish/French subtitles and closed caption options.
***Priority will be given to organizations led by and/or serving Queer and Trans People of Color (QTPOC) and especially Trans Women of Color (TWOC).***
To qualify, your group must have active QTPOC membership and be one or more of the following:
