Dir Jason Benjamin / USA 2016 / 77min
Bindle & Keep tailors in NYC do so much more than make custom suits - they provide a welcoming space and armour of confidence for a diverse queer community living beyond the gender binary. These are their stories.
Going deeper than fine fabrics and silk linings, Suited takes a modern, evolved look at gender through the conduit of clothing and elucidates the private and emotional experience surrounding it. With heart and optimism, the film documents a cultural shift that is creating a new demand—and response—for each person’s right to go out into the world with confidence.
The film ends with a heroic, celebratory fashion show, and we hope you’ll join Fringe! on their closing night suited out in your spiffiest duds.
Fringe Film Festival are delighted to announce that the Drakes will be helping Fringe Film Festival close the 2016 programme with the award-winning documentary, Suited. On the night, the Drakes will be on hand to accompany people to seats and introduce the final film.
The Drakes is a group of butches, transmen and gender rebels who joined together in the spirit of masculine solidarity in early 2012.
Their aims are to promote female masculinity and butch pride.
They are involved in a number of creative projects.
And sometimes they wear suits.
Find them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
