Part of the Freedom! ‘90s limited series!
The category is…vulnerability in this layered documentary embedded in the 1980s New York Ballroom and Drag scene- a source of liberation, family, and survival for Black and Latinx queer people in a world designed for their eradication.
As the world braced for the end of the millennium these films and filmmakers offered an integral voice and perspective into the past, present and future of queer cinema.
