A young Black lesbian discovers community at her local LGBT Center in Finding Hope. Trucker Kitty is a badass woman trucker who shows off her driving skills. A two-spirit Native American man, Devin Howard: Potter finds self-acceptance through pottery. In Shi’ Life, a queer Diné sheep producer on the Navajo Indian Nation is concerned about imported meat. A queer Chinese-Vietnamese refugee shares the challenges of starting a family in Casey’s Hope. Two queer Asian American women run into each other everywhere, what could Possibly be their connection?
