WATCH: Queens at Heart — Amazing 1967 Short Documentary

The vintage short Queens at Heart is newly available via the Vimeo On Demand platform. This 90-second clip gives an amazing glimpse at a courageous trans woman two years before Stonewall! Watch Simone explain the difference between sexual orientation and gender identity. And then rent or download the full 22-minute short — it's available worldwide. I unearthed the 35mm print of this lost queer film more than a decade ago. As an archivist it is truly the most amazing discovery I've ever made and is an absolute must-see. I donated the actual film print to the Outfest/UCLA Legacy Project for LGBT Film Preservation but I'm thrilled to be able to make the film available here on digital so everyone can see it. Enjoy!
