to Chicago's Puerto Rican Transgender Community. Take a look into
the transgender world, while we know about it, read about it in the
news, how much do we actually listen to it? It isn't just about
people in drag or some personality disorder, but they are people.
People who have to live lives just like everyone who won't ever truly
Transgender, yeah most of us has heard about
it, but few really truly understand what it means to be one or know
one. Most think about many how society sees them (and try and go
with the flow) but few realizes the prejudice and bullying these
people face when they 'come out'. Not only from friends, but family
as well, they live their lives with the fear that when they come out
they will be come completely rejected, found jobless and even
disowned by their own family... and yet they still do it, and their
only solace is with those who are like them. The pride of the part
of the community who accepts them.
Josue Pellot's I Am The
Queen (2010) takes look into the transgender acceptance of the
Puerto Rican culture, testimonies from transgender, while they live
in the shadows of the night, they still try hold their heads up high
like the Queens they are. A lot of them either find support from
their families or find they are on their own.
anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 video can be rough often, but the
lossy Dolby Digital 2.0 audio is rougher with location audio issues
throughout no volume height can help. Extras include deleted scenes
and photo gallery.
