This collection of youth-driven shorts featuring LGBTQ characters of color reveals the power and magic of self-definition. These films
journey from a child's wisdom of deconstructing the constraints of masculinity, to the questions, joys, and pain that emerges among siblings at the intersections of identity, to aching to leave the boundaries of childhood. At times heartbreaking but always delightful, these films highlight decisive moments of what it means to be young, gifted, and boldly queer today.
