An icon of L.A.’s transgender community, Latina activist Bamby Salcedo sparkles in Dante Alencastre’s candid documentary. Beginning with Bamby’s life on the drug-addled streets of Guadalajara and then journeying through her recovery and out-spoken activism, TRANSvISIBLE’s riveting one-on-one interviews reveal a selfless HIv advocate and tireless transgender community spokeswoman. (Her work at the Children’s Hospital, Los Angeles and as a coordinator for Angels of Change are just two of many notable causes.) Bamby’s story is one of inspiration and hope.
In Person: Dante Alencastre and Bamby Salcedo
