Duration 60 Mins

K Patrick’s Mrs S is a sensual tale of queer love that paints a revelatory portrait of the butch experience – exploring the contested terrain of our bodies, our desires and the constraints society places around both. Nicola Dinan’s Bellies is a thoughtful and deeply moving portrayal of queer love. From London, to Kuala Lumpur, New York to Cologne, we follow Tom and Ming as they face shifts in their relationship as Ming transitions.

Join K and Nicola in conversation with Tara McEvoy.
