ODE TO AN INNOVATOR

The San Francisco Transgender Film Festival is both bitter and sweet this year. Sweet, because after 11 years of sold-out festivals, the event is moving back to its old digs at the Roxie Theater to accommodate the demand for more screen time. And it's bitter, due to the tragic passing last year of festival co-founder and trans-film pioneer Christopher Lee. Lee was responsible for the first female-to-male trans erotic film, and made the first feature film to star a female-to-male transgendered person of color. Lee's memory is honored this year with a full evening of programming, and a screening of his groundbreaking erotic film Alley of the Trannyboys. Other notable films this year include Haunted and One Zero One. Haunted is a musical homage to haunted house films and stars SF drag personality Suppository Spelling. One Zero One tells the story of two artists: BayBJane, who claims the title of "the world's shortest drag queen," and the award-winning trans artist Cybersissy.
