Why would planetransgender cover a lesbian themed movie? Because its all about gender diversity in expression and identity. As trans people many of us also live in Visible silence. We can relate to this. Even if you can’t afford to contribute, know that you can help by spreading the word on social media.
“Visible Silence: Thai Tomboys and the Ladies Who Love Them” is a documentary film sharing the stories of Thai lesbians striving for visibility, authenticity, and acceptance in a highly traditional society.
Thai activists need the film to support a historic LGBTQ Civil Union bill imminently going before Thai parliament.
Award-winning filmmaker Ruth Gumnit, and her binational (Thai-U.S.) team are poised to support this effort, and are rushing to finish the film.
With support from the Horizons Foundation, Frameline Completion Fund and Astraea Lesbian Foundation For Justice, they are within weeks of completion.
