by Chris Narloch

The Crocker is the place to be this spring, with a sexy new exhibit entitled Forbidden Fruit that showcases the exquisite contemporary porcelain sculpture of Chris Antemann.

That decision led a drive-in theater in Alabama to refuse to show the film, and the Russian and Malaysian governments have also reportedly considered boycotting the movie.

A group of community organizations, led by the Trans Employment Program of the SF LGBT Center and Trans:Thrive at the Asian Pacific Islander (API) Wellness Center will host a free community-wide event to commemorate Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV) on March 31 at SOMArts.

TDOV is an annual celebration around the world dedicated to lifting the accomplishments and victories of transgender & gender non-conforming (GNC) people while raising awareness of the work that is still needed to save trans lives.
