The Pride Center’s Trans and Gender-Nonconforming Community Project


On March 31st, The Savoy Theater (at 26 Main Street, Montpelier, Vt) will host a special event featuring the Academy Award-winning film from Chile “A Fantastic Woman” to benefit The Pride Center’s Trans and Gender-Nonconforming Community Project (TGNCCP).  The evening will include a reception at 4:45 PM in the Downstairs theater followed by the feature film presentation at 5:45 PM and at 8:00 PM.  The critically acclaimed film by Chilean director Sebastian Lelio is about a transgender woman’s finding then losing her true love, and then fighting forces for her dignity and the right to mourn her loss.  The reception will include hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. Tickets are limited, so advanced reservations are encouraged. Admission prices are $7.50 - $9.75 and are available online at www.savoytheater.com .  Donations will be requested at the event.
