queerguru talks to the filmmakers of CHECK IT

Posted on Categories queerguru.tvLabels , ,

‘Check It’ is a powerful and somewhat shocking new documentary about a ‘gang’ of gay and transgender kids in one of Washington DC’s most notoriously tough neighborhoods who collectively decide to fight back against all the physical and mental abuse that is heaped on them as they strive to simply survive. A couple of adult activists offer them a glimmer of hope for a better future.

queerguru got to talk to the filmmakers Dana Flor & Toby Oppenheimer when the movie played at the Provincetown International Film Festival #PIFF16 recently.

Filmed for P.T.V. by Heather Reed.

It is not often that you get to talk to an out and proud queer Iraqi drag queen / activist / writer / actor / journalist but we did just that.  London based Amrou Al-Kahdi aka Glamrou the founder and star of Denim the drag superstar group dragged himself away from an Anti-Trump Protest outside Houses of Parliament to talk to queerguru about how being true to oneself has now taken on such a greater sense of urgency these days.

This disarmingly charming and very articulate man had a lot to say in this exclusive interview we filmed for PTV.
