Summary
A rare and poignant glimpse into pre-Stonewall LGBT life! Produced in 1967, this amazing 22-minute short introduces us to Misty, Vicky, Sonja and Simone{u2014}four courageous trans women who candidly discuss their personal lives with a somewhat lurid interviewer who claims to have interviewed "thousands of homosexuals"(and who obviously doesn{u2019}t understand the difference between sexual orientation and gender identity) ..The film offers an extremely rare and poignant glimpse into pre-Stonewall LGBT life as it takes us to a New York City drag ball and follows the women through their daily lives. They talk about their double-lives {u2014} going out as women at night but living as men during the day, and about how they take hormones and dream of "going for a change." One talks about avoiding the draft, another about her fiance and another about the torment of childhood as an effeminate youth. .."We know that homosexuality is a psychological aberration that should be treated,"proclaims the interviewer as the film ends. Shifting to a surprisingly sympathetic tone he then concludes with the provocative challenge, "but what about those who don't want to change? Who are we to judge?" ..Queens at Heart is a tremendously valuable archival portrait of pre-Stonewall trans women. Their candor and courage are a true gift and this is a must-see film for anyone interested in transgender history
