Queer Voices Berlin Transgression

Queer Voices Berlin Transgression

Queer Voices, Trans
Berlin Transgression is a collection of untold stories of lovelorn queens of Berlin fighting to tear down a new, invisible wall which is the basis of our isolation. The film documents how the transvestite, transgender and transsexual artists struggle between two genders, two identities, two lives. It sheds light on the life of the artists who perform mainly at gay bars and fetish clubs. We followed our main characters not only to back-stage but also to their homes where they opened up their hearts about their deepest dreams and desires. Directed by Joel Lei, Yuki Terada Queer Voices Berlin Transgression Recently, we had a chance to sit down with Yuki to talk about the film and its KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN.
