THE QUEENCIAÑERA (La Queenciañera)

1h 24m LGBT, Documentary, Transgender 2021

Bamby Salcedo, a nationwide undocumented transgender Latina human rights activist, organizes her 50th birthday celebration attended by people significant to her life and survival. As she prepares for the event, Bamby travels through LA county and watches her life go past; from the streets where she smoked crack and the Men’s County Jail where she was raped to journalists and academics she has enlisted to her causes, plush homes of supporters, and communities and organizations she has gathered to change the life of transgender people in the United States. The film reveals the great story of strength and joyful celebration of life that is powered by acceptance of the most painful past experiences to make a real difference for others and oneself.
