Tongan documentary about transgender minority to premiere in London

A Tongan feature documentary about a transgender minority group fighting for equality will premiere at the Festival of Commonwealth Film at the British Museum in London next month.

The film titled Leitis in Waiting officially launches a human rights impact campaign across the Commonwealth before the opening of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting CHOGM 2018.

It follows the journey of Joey Matele, who is a devout Catholic of noble descent, living her life in Tonga as a transgender person and some of the increasing prejudices and challenges she and others like her face.

The film is a collaboration between the filmmakers, Tonga Leitis Association, and the Pacific Sexual and Gender Diversity Network.
