This memory is one of many that have contributed to Blyth understanding that his gender identity did not align with the sex he was assigned at birth, leading to the artist coming out as transgender at eighteen. The artist intends for this to be the first of many animations in a series titled Defining Moments of a Trans Experience, which will portray Blyth’s experiences pre and post transitioning from female to male that contribute to his continued understanding of the fluidity of gender.
The animation consists of 728 unique cels, shot at a rate of 24 frames per second. It was hand-drawn using fine-liners and colouring pencils, using a live-action video for reference of the artist’s eight-year-old sister trying on a similar pair of boxers to that which he remembers. The audio accompanying the animation is from the live-action reference and features the voices of Blyth’s parents, bringing a personal reality to the animation of this intimate moment.

This video celebrates all tastes of love. Vegan foodporn in a camp aesthetic.
MICUŁA - City that start with W.jpg
MICUŁA - City that start with W
Directed by : Katarzyna Borelowska
Submission Category : LGBT - Music Video

Synopsis: The sketches and memories of MICUŁA’s love and hate relationship with Wroclaw (Poland) and a new romance with her mistress Warsaw (Poland) are coexisting within this song. Everyone has a city like this which does not necessarily start with W. Based on the collectiveness of this experience Katarzyna Borelowska wrote and directed a video about a dance therapy class. A universal story about looking for your own place, bouncing off the wall and measuring with reality, for which we sometimes place too much hope, not realizing that the environment is not conducive.“I crumble around you, so hold me tight” (“Przy Tobie się kruszę, więc mocno mnie tul”).
We are all strangers wherever we are. And many can identify with this story. It was performed by the artists related to Warsaw. Krzysztof Lubka is responsible for the choreography, and since July 2020 he has been dancing his performance "I'm queer and for far too long I lived in fear" in the center of a city. The first Drag King in Polish pop plays the role of the therapist: Maryjan Bear from Drag King SharmTRIO. Kiss me in the soul city that starts with W (“Pocałuj mnie w duszę miasto na W”). Kiss all of us and let us live and express ourselves the way we want to.
