The Transgender Experience

The Transgender Experience

This film screening and panel discussion called Conversation Starters, is part of a broader Conversation Series, sponsored by JPMorgan Chase & Co., Central Florida Foundation, Lockheed Martin, Orlando Utilities Commission, and Skanska USA Building, Inc.

“The three films allow the audience to see the humanity of trans people,” said Dr. Earl Mowatt, vice president of education for onePULSE Foundation. “Whether you are straight, gay lesbian, bisexual, trangender, non-binary, or anywhere in between, this presentation is a great opportunity for you to learn more about a community who is often misunderstood.”

Mowatt is co-facilitating the panel discussion with Nikole Parker, director of transgender equality for Equality Florida. The panelists include: Angela Denk, mom of a transgender son and former partner of a transgender woman; Angelica Jones/Sanchez, LGBTQ+ advocate, entertainer and Pulse survivor; Brita Jackson, president/owner of Arquette Model Agency; and Jaime Jara, high school educator and mom of a transgender daughter.
