    Real Talk | DOC SHORTS!

    98 mins
    This collection of short documentaries uplifts voices of queer, trans, and gender nonconforming people from all walks of life, both young and old. In BLUSH we see a portrait of a gender-bending relationship between performance artist Hannah and her lover Antonio, a veteran Drag Queen; the first episode of locally-produced web series AMERICA IN TRANSITION, LEARNING TO RECOGNIZE MYSELF AGAIN puts the life of a trans woman and survivor front and center as she tells her story of struggling to reconnect; and, featuring Reeling alum Fawzia Mirza, POSHIDA unveils the grim realities of Pakistan's LGBTQ community at a time when their basic human rights are under fire.

    In This Program: Blush, Gaysians, Learning to Recognize Myself Again, Mezzo, Pink Boy, Poshida
