Kokomo City

Kokomo City presents the stories of four Black transgender sex workers in New York and Georgia. Shot in striking black and white, the boldness of the facts of these women's lives and the earthquaking frankness they share complicate this enterprise, colliding the everyday with cutting social commentary and the excavation of long-dormant truths. Unfiltered, unabashed, and unapologetic, D. Smith and her collaborators offer a refreshing rawness and vulnerability unconcerned with purity and politeness.

In honour of Koko Da Doll, this screening is hosted by House Ball Scotland, holding an aftercare space which will be detailed on the evening.

House Ball Scotland is a QTIBIPOC-led community and platform for the underground ball scene in Scotland.

Co-curated by Nusa.

Content Warnings:
- Discussions of abuse, violence, trauma, transphobia, racism, sex work.
