SFU Surrey28 Feb '19 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

    The Metro Vancouver Premiere of the multiple international award-winning local indie doc, My Name Was January, will be held at SFU Surrey.

    SYNOPSIS

    When a trans sister, January Marie Lapuz, is brutally murdered in her own home in New Westminster, BC, a community reacts and her friends and other trans women of colour come to share and voice their issues, concerns, and challenges. January was seen as a bright light in the lives of many. This is the story of January, a friend, a daughter, a person. This film will not only bring justice to January, but to all the women who have lost their lives. January had a beautiful soul, and now part of her soul rests in each and every one of us.
