If you find yourself with nothing to do this Fourth of July weekend, you should definitely go see ‘Mala Mala’. Directed by Antonio Santini + Dan Sickles, this feature documentary explores the ups + downs of the transgender + transsexual communities in Puerto Rico. Highlighting LGBTQ activists, sex workers, + drag performers, including April Carrión from ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race Season Six’, the film also chronicles the efforts of Butterflies Trans Foundation, the LGBTQ civil rights organization, as they help pass Bill 238, a new Puerto Rican law that bans employment discrimination based on sexual + gender orientation.
‘Mala Mala’ will be showing at the IFC Center (NYC) all weekend up until July 9th. For a complete schedule, click here.
