#NoFatsNoFemmes

NoFatsNoFemmes documentary: Confidence is not a destination, it is an ongoing journey

“The goal is revolution. The goal is not for a fat, femme or trans feminine person to be fucking desired – because we are desired. What I want is for people to turn inward and interrogate the source of their own desires. I want to deconstruct, decolonise and to dismantle beauty as a system of domination, so that one person is not to be held up as a standard of beauty when there is a multitude of possibilities.”

New York-based queer film maker, Jamal T Lewis, 25, is pulling no punches with their forthcoming film, No Fats No Femmes. Lewis recently crowdfunded the production costs and the film is now set for release in 2017.
