Garlic Dough Balls, Film still, 2020

Garlic Dough Balls


25 November 2020

It was the year 2003, I was 12 years old, and The Black Eyed Peas had us all questioning where is the love? Now it’s 2020, I’m 29, and trans people the world over are still wondering that same thing. Garlic Dough Balls is a short video about being trans and being loved.

Garlic Dough Balls, 2020

In the past year at least 350 trans and gender non-conforming people have been killed globally.
98% of them were trans women or transfeminine people.
In the US 79% of those killed were people of colour. 62% of murdered trans people whose occupation is known were sex workers.
The average age of those killed is 31, with the youngest victim being 15.
A fifth were killed in their own homes.
Due to data not being systematically collected in most countries, added to the constant misgendering by families, authorities, and media, it is not possible to estimate the number of unreported cases.
