Hard-core hip-hop meets queer culture in this documentary that reveals a surprisingly vibrant underground movement of gay and lesbian rappers, including performances and interviews with artists such as Deadlee and JenRO. Capturing other leading LGBT emcees in concert, director Alex Hinton also traces the history of queer rap and examines its place in a wider hip-hop culture that's often openly hostile to gays and lesbians.
