Transgender comedian Ian Harvie is the focus of this hilarious yet self-aware 2013 documentary. His facile sense of ease, not just his gender-bending presence, makes his humor groundbreaking. It's these very qualities that attracted comedian Margaret Cho, who produced this film and has publicly raved about Ian's work, besides included him in her opening act for years. Filled with clips of Ian's stage shows (and his inclusive, relatable humor), he explores everything from acquiring male privilege to navigating gendered bathroom politics."Ian's comedy, and his story is one that is unique in standup, totally original and important - I know you will love it as much as I do." - Margaret Cho
Keith Thirion, Director of Advocacy and Programming at Equality Maryland, will introduce the film and be available for a q&a afterwards.
