About

X is a transgender leather boy, an actor, and a lost soul. He’s most at home when he’s with the Lavender League, a community bowling club for a team of lesbians who meet once a week to finger holes and throw balls at a finite horizon. When Susan, the lesbian matriarch captain of the Lavender League, fulfills her wish to die on her 75th birthday, her funeral brings a surprise visitor to Los Angeles. Death and Bowling is performed by an almost entirely transgender cast in both transgender and non-transgender character roles.

Preceded by the short film “Don’t Buy Milk”, a whimsical animated portrait of a small dairy town.
