Through an intimate and visually challenging camera lens, we have a complex insight into the Kiki scene – a subculture and movement formed by LGBT youth in New York. With the Kiki-movement they find a sanctuary from the outside world of racist, gay and transphobic repression. Here the youth find alternative family systems, mentoring and friendship – but also a political atmosphere and through the art form known as House and Ballroom, whose most famous expression is the dance form vogueing. Winner of best Teddy-documentary at Berlin International Film Festival.

Opening film!
