"I am so grateful and excited that Sé is making a documentary about child survivors of the UCLA Gender Identity Research Clinic. Unfortunately, this kind of medical abuse of gender non-conforming and queer kids is still happening. This film will allow more people to learn how this kind of medical abuse works and how we can come together in resistance."
"Sé Sullivan courageously uses their own personal story to interrogate the medical industrial complex's deep investments in maintaining the gender binary. The work is inspiring in its honesty and complexity. Sullivan challenges us to grapple with a violent history and to recognize and celebrate queer resistance in the face of that violence."
