From their multitude of projects such as the new universal calendar Sissy, the illustrated documentary 100 Percent with Thea Lim and “God Loves Queers” with Brooklyn Boihood’s Genesis Tremaine, Lim discusses their experiences with the term sissy, race and religion.

About the Film:
“Criminal Queers” visualizes a radical trans/queer struggle against the prison industrial complex and toward a world without walls. Remembering that prison breaks are both a theoretical and material practice of freedom, this film imagines what spaces might be opened up if crowbars, wigs, and metal files become tools for transformation. Follow Yoshi, Joy, Susan and Lucy as they fiercely read everything from the Human Rights Campaign and hate crimes legislation to the non-profitization of social movements. “Criminal Queers” grows our collective liberation by working to abolish the multiple ways our hearts, genders, and desires are confined.
