CGiii Comment

Shot on the occasion of her 50th birthday, this film follows Bamby Salcedo as she makes plans to throw herself a “Queenciañera” party and reflects on her amazing journey from Guadalajara, Mexico to living as an addict in LA’s Skid Row to winning her first job with the LGBTQIA+ community when she was fresh out of recovery. She started from the bottom, reached for the top, and is still going to this day. Now a nationally and internationally known Latina Transgender activist and founder of the TransLatin@ Coalition, Salcedo takes the phrase “never give up” to a whole new level. Salcedo is inspiring new generations to get involved in LGBTQIA+ activism, and it’s a good thing because with the recent tremendous backlash against trans people, it is needed more than ever.
