“’There are not very many documentaries about queer women of color, anything at all, despite the fact that queer women of color have been at the frontlines of community organizing and activism for decades and decades,’ Lim told me in a joint Zoom conversation with Gomez. Lim is also one of the film’s directors of photography and the founding executive director of the Queer Women of Color Media Arts Project (QWOCMAP).

‘You have to imagine a better world to get to a better world,’ says Gomez in the film, ‘which is why I love writing.’”
