Following the screening, local trans activist Lauryn Farris moderates a panel discussion between Antonia Padilla, Eric LaRue and Salcedo herself. $5, 7pm Sat, Esperanza Peace and Justice Center, 922 San Pedro Ave., parking available in lots 21, 28 and 29 at San Antonio College, (210) 228-0201, esperanzacenter.org. — JC
