Out of Many, a TFFB-curated film program screening at the 12 Moons Film Lounge during Moon 10, brings together a selection of works that depict trans* involvement in different movements around the globe. On 25 October, at 19:00, we invite you to join us in a talk with four Berlin-based trans* activists and organizers, working on different issues, in discussion about the work they do, the challenges they face and some of the strategies that they find effective.

We, the trans*guidebook collective, are an abolitionist group made up of volunteer individuals who want to support trans* people in prisons. Our new brochure aims to support imprisoned trans* and non-binary people, by giving legal advices and everyday tips. We would also like to begin a debate about trans*/non-binary people and prisons. Above all, we would like to connect imprisoned, repressed and other trans*/non-binary people who want to show solidarity, with each other.
