WATCH: America’s gender revolution seen at the local scale in new documentary

A new documentary called Kings, Queens & In-Betweens focuses on the drag kings, drag queens and transgender performers in Columbus, Ohio as a lens to view a wider gender revolution that’s gaining momentum in the LGBTQ community and beyond.

So often, we resist ideas that are outside our realm of personal experience. That’s why films like this one are so valuable.

By focusing in on one small community, the documentary makes a complex subject approachable for mainstream audiences — inviting viewers into a conversation about the distinct and important differences between gender, sex, and sexuality.

Check out the trailer below, and look for it in select cities beginning March 3, and on streaming services (iTunes, Amazon, Google Play) on March 7:
