Fringe! Flings – an ongoing love affair with queer cinema at Genesis is back with Tim Travers Hawkins’s XY Chelsea.

XY Chelsea tells the historic story of whistleblower Chelsea Manning, whose 35-year sentence in an all-male maximum security prison was commuted by President Obama in 2017. XY Chelsea is the journey of her fight for survival and dignity, and her transition from prisoner to a free woman.

Keep a look out for updates – we plan to mark the release of this amazing film with something special.

Content warning: this film contains scenes of war, violence, and references to suicide that viewers may find upsetting.
