Life is dangerous for the Check It gang, a group of transgender and gay survivors living in one of DC’s poor, rough neighborhoods. Standing up (and fighting back, violently if necessary) for who they are is more than an issue of pride; they would be dead otherwise. This raw and moving documentary follows the four main gang leaders—Skittles, Day Day, Tray, and Alton—as they struggle to stay on track in their lives. Guided by Mo, an ex-convict, they try to break the cycle of poverty and violence they’ve grown up with through an unlikely route—fashion: creating their own clothing label, putting on shows, modeling, and working backstage during NY Fashion Week.
Contains depictions of violence and drug use, nudity, and profanity.
