How does it feel to have your gender identity included in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders? Diagnosing Difference is a full-length length documentary featuring interviews with 13 diverse scholars, activists, and artists who identify on the trans spectrum (transgender, transsexual, genderqueer, and gender variant) about the impact and implications of the Gender Identity Disorder (GID) on their lives and communities. Dr. Annalise Ophelian is a San Francisco-based human sexuality consultant and trans ally who holds a doctorate in clinical psychology. She interned for two years at New Leaf: Services for Our Community, one of the nation's leading LGBT community mental health clinics, where she specialized in working with individuals and couples on issues of gender identity, alternative sexualities, and trauma recovery.
The screening will take place at Eaton Humanities 150 on Wednesday, Feb. 24 from 5 - 7:30. Join the Filmmaker, Dr. Annalise Ophelian, for an introduction, film viewing and Q&A session.
