Another example of, It isn’t valid unless it happens to a white male.
If your response to any of this is review is “sure it’s bad but at least it’s starting a conversation” or “at least it got made”, no. You are wrong. Because it’s worse than not being made. It is a fictional history that fist erases the fact that it was Trans Women of Color that are the reason we have equality today. It was the non gender conforming, the Trans people, the femme men butch women who all could not pass as Cis or Straight or both, that took the hits. That created visibility. That made sure we have what levels of equality we do now. It is erasure. And that doesn’t even touch the fact that the Cis lesbians aren’t even a part of this story. it’s about a white guy who has a lot of hetero privilege from the Midwest having an experience so the white hetero community can feel good about going to next year’s pride parade. It’s not about the true history. So if your response includes “it’s bad but” you are part of the problem. And this movie is an expression of the fact that we are largely telling the non gender conforming members of our community to go back in the closet. We got our equality quit rocking the boat.
I am so sorry that this is the life you have to lead.
