The QRC presents the highly anticipated screening of Invisible No More: A Queer & Trans History at Amherst College, a documentary co-produced and directed by Saren Deardorff ’17 and edited by Bixie Eutsler ‘20.

The film highlights the historical and current narratives of our queer and trans students, staff, faculty, and alumni over the years. The screening will be followed by a discussion with Angie Tissi-Gassoway, Associate Dean for Diversity and Inclusion and co-producer of Invisible No More, Saren Deardorff '17, and Nayah Mullings '17, Invisible No More interviewee and former QRC Education and Advocacy Coordinator.
