This pioneering documentary filmed in NYC from 1997-2004 follows a group of “Aggressives,” or “AG’s” – masculine presenting and/or identifying – queer people of color who were assigned female at birth. It explores their dreams, secrets and deepest fears as well as their social spaces like the “ballroom” and club scene. Ultimately the film focuses on the humanity of the subjects while attempting to unravel evolving terms around gender definition.
