Today, the freedoms on offer to LGBTQ+ people living in the West are greater than ever. But is same-sex marriage, improved media visibility and corporate endorsement all it’s cracked up to be? At what cost does this acceptance come and who is getting left behind? Amelia Abraham talks to Tom Rasmussen (Diary of a Drag Queen) about losing herself in the world’s biggest drag convention, marching at Pride across Europe, visiting both a transgender model agency and the Anti-Violence Project in New York to understand the extremes of trans life, partying in Turkey’s underground LGBTQ+ scene and meeting a genderless family in progressive Stockholm.Buy tickets
