Soueid’s intimate portrait of the Syrian transgender Khaled El Kurdi draws a line from everyday scenes like cooking and applying makeup to El Kurdi’s work as a dancer in a Beirut nightclub and his involvement in the Lebanese Civil War. The intimate setting leaves room for the inner conflicts in El Kurdi’s identity and sexuality which are continuously contradicting societal norms »outside«.
