A proud transgender sex worker since the age of eleven, Luana Muniz, now fifty-nine, shapes a new reality in her “hostel” by housing a new generation of transgender sex workers in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Directed by Theodore Collatos and Carolina Monnerat, Queen of Lapa explores the day-to-day lives, rivalries, and quests for love of sex workers, as Muniz’s guides them in a city full of hostility towards its LGBTQ community.
Virtual Theatrical Release: June 19th. This film can be watched on your desktop, tablet, smartphone as well as on any devices outfitted with Chromecast or Airplay. There are no native apps for smart TVs, Roku, Amazon Fire Stick, or Apple TV.
