The Aggressives is a dynamic film shot in vibrant NYC, featuring intimate interviews with six [lesbians] of colour who define themselves as "Aggressives". The Aggressives range in/through masculinities - from pretty tomboys to blatantly butch - to explore the unexplored gaps in society's gender labels; boldly creating their own identities. Stripped of pretence they lead us to fashion shoots and prison cells to reveal their work lives, love lives, and social lives including the underground "ball" scene. The film presents one entry point to the AG community and AG movement in all its unabashed rough-edged glory and explores its impact on gender identity in the modern world. Labels get loudly rejected while dealing with race and image in trans contexts.
