"We are people of revolution. We are here because others have rebelled. Because others have stood in solid resistance!"
Phillip Pike's documentary tells the story of Toronto's black queer and trans* community. Diverse, cross-generational accounts are dedicated to the struggles for visibility and against police violence in building a powerful black queer community that today culminates in Toronto's chapter of the "Black Lives Matter" movement.
The film shows the courage, tenacity, dedication and creativity with which activist communities and discourses have been built, the organization of safer and more life-affirming spaces, and last but not least, always gives room for dance in this queer black revolution!
