Leitis in Waiting

Arpil 7 6 pm Hosted through Zoom

Leitis In Waiting follows Joey Mataele and the Tonga leitis, a group of native transgender women fighting intolerance in the South Pacific. Join Joey as she organizes a beauty pageant with a princess, mentors a young leiti rejected by her family, and fights off colonial-era laws. With unexpected humor and access to royals and religious leaders, Joey's journey reveals what it means to be different in a society ruled by tradition and what it takes to be accepted with forsaking who you are.
