Growing up, Frankie Gonzales-Wolfe learned to be a fighter, but she never imagined having a chance to make history as the first openly elected transgender official in Texas. Unfolding amidst an onslaught of trans legal attacks, A Run for More immerses viewers on Frankie’s journey as she finds her voice, questions her relationship to community, and tries to win an election. Shot over 4 years, A Run for More immerses viewers into Frankie’s unique campaign and the impact it has on her, the city, and the LGBTQ+ community in San Antonio.
The Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Lily Tomlin/Jane Wagner Cultural Arts Center & Leadership LAB come together to present this special documentary screening. Join us after the screening for a post-show conversation with Frankie Gonzales-Wolfe (via Zoom) and members of the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Leadership LAB.
