"Tamara W." is an honest, stripped-down look into the world of voguing, escort business, ecstasy addiction, sexual abuse, and being a transgender girl. The documentary film is a compassionate portrait of Tamara Williams, a 23-year-old Bronx girl with fire in her heart, and too much life experience on her shoulders.
Tamara tells her story openly and candidly. The disturbing experiences of her life have not been able to dispirit her. British counterculture icon i-D Magazine has listed Tamara among its "30 under 30" New Yorkers shaking up the City.
