Director Statement

In this time when anti-trans and anti-black and anti-abortion sentiments and forces are on the rise, this film demonstrates what support, acceptance, friendship and freedom of choice can look like within a trans chosen family. Wishing you all visits from the phoenix and love from your trans siblings and your community. ~ Hanlon Uafás-Álainn, Writer/Director
