Throughout the first five months of his hormone therapy, Remy Leroux takes us through his body and mind in eloquent animation Ink Deep. Dos Almas, set in 1860, finds a mestiza woman alone in the wilderness. Pauline and her best friend Etienne set off to discover Who is Pauline Park? Love Bang! is a fierce Cambodian “hip pop” time-travelling trans art music video! Dating Sucks: A Genderqueer Misadventure is an animation about the successes, failures, and confusion of trying to date as a genderqueer/trans person. Beyoutiful is a stunning Taiwanese animation that explores the necessity of conventional gender identity.
