WARNING: The Alternative Clinic at Purchase College strives to provide a safer space to discuss sexual health. There are images and references that are sexual in nature. These representations are not explicit, but the material is intended for a mature audience.
The Alternative Clinic has been a fixture of the Purchase College campus for over 30 years. The Clinic provided a comfortable and respectful space for women to receive medical treatment and counseling. In 2012, the Clinic was forced to suspend its medical practices due to liabilities. This documentary discusses the circumstances and aftermath of the shutdown, as well as the Clinic's fight to regain its prominence and power on campus with a new focus on trans rights and sexual health and education for all.
Produced, Directed, Edited and Written by Gerald T. Deis and Thomas Luke
Additional Cinematography by Ian Cumming
