CRIMINAL QUEERS

Chris Vargas & Eric A. Stanley; 2016; USA; 65 min. 

What if we lived in a world without walls? When their friend Lucy (a trans woman of color) is wrongfully put in jail, Yoshi and Joy take it upon themselves to break her out. With cameos by Angela Davis, Miss Major, and CeCe McDonald, this queer critique of the prison-industrial complex by Chris Vargas (FALLING IN LOVE… WITH CHRIS AND GREG; CRY BOY CRY, Translations 2013; HOMOTOPIA) yearns for a world free of prisons, where the strict confines of gender and sexuality would crumble as well. 

Criminal Queers is co-presented with the Henry Art Gallery, in conjunction with the exhibition MOTHA and Chris E. Vargas present: Trans Hirstory in 99 Objects. Additional support is provided by the University of Washington Honors Program, the Relational Poverty Network at the University of Washington, and the University of Washington Department of Gender, Women, & Sexuality Studies.
