About Reel Inclusion

The "Reel Inclusion" film series began Fall Semester 2019 as a collaborative effort between The Office of the Provost, Inclusive Excellence, the Multicultural Center, University Libraries, and the Friends of the Bracken M. Library with the goal of engaging the campus community in learning and discussion around issues related to diversity, inclusion, and social justice.

Upcoming Film

Becoming More Visible: Young Transgener Adults on a Journey to Becoming More Visible

Thursday, April 4, 5:30-7:30 p.m. in AT 183
Discussion Facilitator: Dr. Brandon Million, Assistant Director for Inclusive Excellence at Ball State University

Are you Male or Female? For the four fearless young transgender adults featured in the film this is not a simple question. These four defy societal norms to be their true selves and become more visible. None of their transitions is easy, but for some it is easier than for others.

Becoming More Visible seeks to help ignite the awareness and understanding needed to put an end to the discrimination of transgender young adults worldwide - to encourage society to see these young people for who they are today, not how they were born or choose to identify.

The film is 1hr 11min long.  Attend the screening as part of Campus Pride Month and Trans Day of Visibility.

Some R-rated language, and brief reference to male genitalia.

Dr. Brandon Million, Assistant Director for Inclusive Excellence, will lead discussion following the screening.
