Had the distinct pleasure of meeting the one and only April Carrion ( @aprilcarrion ) last night. I first learned April through mutual friends on @Instagram . She was a contestant on RuPaul’s Drag Race ( @rupaul ) 6th Season and more recently can be seen in the documentary Mala Mala at the Tribeca Film Festival. That’s precisely where we met last night. I was invited to see a screening of the documentary Mala Mala at the Film Festival where the cast and crew where present for a quick Q & A at the end of the film.
Mala Mala brings a light into the Transsexual and Transvestite community of Puerto Rico. The film truly humanizes these man and women who are often misrepresented by media in general. We can take part of the community’s day to day struggles for human rights but also their hunger for life and happiness as we all seek. Big congrats to April and all the cast and crew of this magnificent production. I wish all the very best !
