It’s preference not discrimination! That’s what the LGBT community has been yelling for years. But, what is the true tea?

We’re about find out. The IndieGogo campaign has raised nearly $10k of it’s $20k goal and the film’s creator is serious about getting justice for the community:

My name is Jamal Lewis and I am the writer and director of No Fats, No Femmes, a feature-length documentary about desire. I’m a cultural worker, performance artist, and freedom fighter living in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, hailing from Atlanta. My work examines identity formation, uglinesss, desire(ability), race, class, gender, and sexuality through a Black, queer, feminist, and abolitionist lens.

No Fats, No Femmes interrogates and explores desire and the ways in which it is deeply informed by media, pop culture, and capitalism through interviews, archival research, and performance. The film critically engages the phrase “no fats, no femmes,” which is popularly used on queer social networking/dating sites to describe one’s dating preferences, through the personal narrative(s) of 5 Black and Brown gender-non-conforming, queer, trans, fat, femme, and disabled people.
