"'I was the mystery of an anatomy, a question asked but not answered,' says poet Lee Mokobe, a TED Fellow, in this gripping and poetic exploration of identity and transition. It's a thoughtful reflection on bodies, and the meanings poured into them."
"When Jenni and Lisa first fell in love, they vowed to follow a life of adventure. The couple had no idea that their promise would lead them to leave their 9-5 jobs, pick up a video camera, and travel to fifteen countries through Asia, Africa, and South America for one year. The couple went in search of the people who are leading the movement for gay, lesbian, and transgender equality. While interviewing LGBT leaders they realized that their journey captures the momentous changes occurring in the status of queer people around the world today."
"Artist iO Tillett Wright has photographed 2,000 people who consider themselves somewhere on the LGBTQ spectrum and asked many of them: Can you assign a percentage to how gay or straight you are? Most people, it turns out, consider themselves to exist in the gray areas of sexuality, not 100% gay or straight. Which presents a real problem when it comes to discrimination: Where do you draw the line?"
