Sidney & Friends, one of the films featured this year at the Outfest Fusion LGBTQ People of Color Film Festival, is a moving testament to the resiliency of the human spirit and power of community. 

The documentary follows Sidney, who is intersex, after he flees his violent home and heads to Nairobi, where he befriends a group of transgender people fighting discrimination. An honest exploration of gender, friendship, and love, their narratives — painful and endearing — paint a heartfelt portrait of the human condition and what it means to live and fight at the margins of an anti-LGBTQI+ Kenyan society.

Spotlighting the diversity of the LGBTQ community, Outfest Fusion LGBTQ People of Color Film Festival highlights films and offers classes and seminars on filmmaking to ensure all voices are represented in our community. 

Outfest Fusion takes place March 1–5, 2019 at various venues throughout Los Angeles. For more info visit:
