Description
 

This collection of films by and about LGBT people of color is a gay melting pot of diverse voices---a Foxy Brown wannabe, two phone sex workers who steal tampons, a self-hating Chinese anglophile and two quarks called Strange and Charmed. The stories they tell span countries, cultures, and the cosmos. This collection includes the films:

Badass Supermama A playful exploration of race, gender and adolescent notions of beauty

Tampon ThievesZena and Tita are due in court for stealing tampons; they refuse to pay for the privilege of menstruating

Yellow FeverA love story set in 90s London, following the life of Monty, a gay Chinese anglophile, desperately seeking his "white knight."

Strange & CharmedNot long ago, we believed the smallest elements of the universe were protons, neutrons and electrons. Then we discovered that these tiny particles are made up of even smaller particles called quarks. There are six kinds of quarks and their names are Up, Down, Top, Bottom, Strange and Charmed.

For full details on the individual films, please see their pages.
