"Ze" details multiple "coming outs" from one LGBTQI box to the next, in a celebration that exposes the tension between being authentic and belonging.

Real Mature (Shirley Gnome - Canada) You may be thinking it - but this shameless songstress sings it loud and proud with "the voice of an angel dry-humping a cloud." Award-winning, taboo, sexually empowering comedy that is NOT for the faint of heart.
