New Documentary: Trans Tenderloin Clinic

Mark’s ASK from Transgender Tuesdays Movie on Vimeo.

The documentary film “Transgender Tuesdays: A Clinic In the Tenderloin” is looking for supporters to help fund the film, slated to premier this Summer of 2012.

The film featured the first folks to utilize a little clinic called Transgender Tuesdays, back in 1993.

“At the time, I was a Family Nurse Practitioner and part of a team in San Francisco that was trying to reach out to the most under-served group in our region, and during the worst period of the AIDS epidemic to hit our city,” writes Mark Freeman, the film’s creator on its fund-raising website. “We didn’t know then that what we were starting would turn out to be the country’s first Primary Care clinic aimed at transgendered folks.”

Through the merging of health care providers from this one small Public Health clinic, activists from every ethnic and gender group in the city, and actively participating trans folks, a whole new model of care for the country emerged. And what’s more, through bridging these groups, a truly unique and inclusive sense of trans community was born.
