Fringe! Flings - an ongoing love affair with queer cinema at Genesis is back with Tim Travers Hawkins' XY Chelsea followed by a Q&A with Tim & Bent Bars Project.

XY Chelsea tells the historic story of whistleblower Chelsea Manning, whose 35-year sentence in an all-male maximum security prison was commuted by President Obama in 2017. XY Chelsea is the journey of her fight for survival and dignity, and her transition from prisoner to a free woman.

Bent Bars Project will illuminate Chelsea's current situation, answer any questions you may have, and direct us towards vital campaigns and ways to support Chelsea and others.
