P.S. Burn this Letter Please
Michael Seligman & Jennifer Tiexiera
Documentary : 101' / Drag, Community, Queer

A box of letters, held in secret for nearly 60 years, ignites a five-year exploration into a part of LGBT history that has never been told. The letters, written in the 1950s by a group of New York City drag queens, open a window into a forgotten world where being yourself meant breaking the law and where the penalties for “masquerading” as a woman were swift and severe.
