Threat Level, the bi-monthly screening of queer short films, is happening this Friday and the theme is musicals. I’m not sure there is anything gayer than a trans-positive musical, so FUCKING HOORAY for that. A little more exciting though, is that this time, Threat Level is showing a sneak preview of Riot Acts: Flaunting Gender Deviance in Music Performance, the documentary about trans-musicians produced and directed by Actor Slash Model. This film is gearing up to be the first of its kind: we’ve seen docs about certain performers, but this film will capture the state of queer music today while tackling issues related to being transgendered. Chicago has always been a hotbed for queerness, but this film will further put us on the map.
