Get Your Tickets Today!

We are proud to co-sponsor LADY VALOR, a film about former Navy seal Kristen Beck, at the upcoming New York Human Rights Festival. You can see the documentary on June 14 at 7 PM at the IFC Center and June 16 at 6:30 PM at the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Walter Reade Theater. Both screenings will be followed by a discussion with filmmaker Sandrine Orabona and film subject Kristen Beck. Beck told her story on CNN in June of 2013 and quickly became known throughout the world. Since then she has become a civil rights activist, giving speeches across the nation on transgender equality and transgender service in the US military. As the filmmakers explain: “In LADY VALOR: The Kristin Beck Story, former U.S. Navy SEAL Christopher Beck embarks on a new mission as Kristin Beck. Kristin's journey in search of the American ideals that she protected: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness have a whole new meaning as she lives her life truthfully as a transgender woman.” Order your tickets here.
