Two mid-length documentaries about extraordinary Australian trans women: Trans Glamoré about DJ Victoria Anthony, founder of the Sydney institution; and The Accidental Archivist about Julie Peters, the first trans woman to run for Federal and Victorian State parliaments.
In its World Premiere, Trans Glamoré profiles founder Victoria Anthony as trans performers and prominent trans figures like Peta Friend, founder of Trans Pride Australia, reflect on the importance of community events like it. It’s joined by The Accidental Archivist, about Julie Peters, her extensive collection of trans-related media she’s compiled since her early 20s, and her courageous story of transitioning while working at the ABC in the 1990s.
