“Sex Work. Survival. Sisterhood.” is the catchy subtitle of this emboldening documentary, which offers important insight into the history of New York’s Meatpacking District.
New York’s legendary Meatpacking District has many stories to tell. THE STROLL is about the transgender women of color who have left their mark on this neighborhood over the years. Where rich hipsters now brunch, an underground community once formed. This is where the many trans sex workers who were marginalized for so long worked, lived, loved, and died.
