U.S. | 2023 | Documentary
57 minutes

The legacy of free-state battles in Kansas continues with modern-day friends of Dorothy who find that home can be a hostile place. Directed by Oscar winner Kevin Willmott, and narrated by Grammy and Oscar award-winning musician Melissa Etheridge, both Kansans by birth, this film explores the challenges for acceptance and compassion that LGBTQ people face through stories of gains and losses, love and hatred, and the willful ignorance that continue to make this effort so arduous yet vital for the very soul of our humanity. This film uses Kansas as a case study to examine issues currently facing Americans across the country and the world with anti-trans legislation that often targets the most vulnerable members of society.
