This was a groundbreaking festival. here is an excerpt from the paper in Melbourne:
The Classification Board has this morning given Melbourne Queer Film Festival the go-ahead to screen Sexing the Transman.
“The trans community will no doubt be rapt to finally be able to view a sex-positive trans documentary among the safe and supportive environment of the MQFF — it’s the first public screening of its kind in Australia, and hopefully the first of many,” MQFF director Lisa Daniel said.
“Full credit goes to the Board for acknowledging the adult film festival-going community of Melbourne is mature enough to decide what they would like to view.”
