About the film: Performing Girl is a short documentary (30 min) about D’Lo, a queer transgender, Tamil Sri Lankan American actor, writer, director and comic. D’Lo and his parents explain how his identity and their relationship has changed over the last 20 years. The film won the OUTFEST Grand Jury Award for Short Documentary and the Best Short Film from the Southwest Gay and Lesbian Film Festival.

Following the film will be a discussion led by Anna Renée Winget, PhD student in Drama.

This event is part of the Queer of Color Festival at UCI.
The Queer of Color Fest is an event to celebrate queer of color artists and scholars, to provide a venue to showcase their work (films, performances, music, art, writing, research, etc.), and to open up a safe space to hold much needed discussions of intersectionality and how intersections of identity affect work generated by queer of color individuals.

All events are free and open to the public.
