Faggotgirl Gets Busy In The Bathroom

This short is a playful and sexy romp (no dialogue) through the bars of Philadelphia's "gayborhood" to explore if the bars are wheelchair accessible, and if they have gender-neutral bathrooms. That sounds technical, (and the film does include accurate information about accessibility standards), but it stars Faggotgirl, a butch dyke super-hero action figure (of myself). This short is affirming of transgender/GNC people and people with diverse mobility methods.
