a documentary

This trailer shows how gender policing and anti-LGBTQ attitudes affect all types of people, including straight persons who feel pressured to avoid certain types of clothing. Several teens mention having fun while bending gender roles, too!

    I saw this at a screening here in Atlanta, and loved it. I was expecting it to address LGBTQ issues more directly (there was no mention of any alternative gender identities besides transexual), so it came across as a cisgendered community's view on gender expression. Still, I was very impressed by it, and left the theater in the best mood in the world. I would recommend it to everyone.
