Film about changing gender

The Lifetree Café will show a documentary film about a man who identifies as a woman and begins the process of changing gender.

Talk on race

Moving Beyond Racism will hold a discussion on "Beyond the Whiteness of White" by Jane Lazarre at 7 p.m. on Monday, July 1.

Film on the Seneca Nation

The University of Rochester will show the film "Bury My Heart with Tonawanda," which tells the story of a boy with Down syndrome who is rejected by his family, but accepted by the Tonawanda Seneca Nation.
