Transcendent Bodies follows two transpeople—one gender queer person and one trans woman—through the rediscovery of their desires, arousal and orgasm during an Erotic Awakening massage. The primary intention of this edu-documentary is to help transpeople and their partners negotiate the tricky terrain of changing bodies, emotions and identities that accompany life and sex outside the gender binary. Coincidentally, it presents a model of sexual and sensual relating that can apply to everyone

5 pm PST – Sunday, September 13 – Tickets

*A short Q&A session with Barbara Carrellas is scheduled to follow the screening.
