I saw this show at the closing of the Vancouver Queer film festival, and i must note that there is nothing that makes this film "queer fringe". The reason its shown as part of the festival is because our leading lady is a lesbian. Beyond that, this movie contains little sex. Of what little sex it does have, none of it is explicit nor graphic (i don't even remember any nudity).
