Set in mid-sized city in 2011, The Queers follows Lisa, a trans woman substitute teacher falsely accused of misconduct at work, and Andrea, a trans woman at the very beginning of her transition. The pair cross paths with Smith and Pim, a young nonbinary couple. Activism, jealousy, financial insecurity and suicidal ideation all ensue as the pressure of transphobia raises lie's stresses to a fever pitch. (Parts for 2 trans women, 2 nonbinary actors, 1 cis woman and 1 cis man)
