Femme Queen Chronicles is a web-series about the lives of four black trans women as they navigate through love, life, trade, and shade in the city of Detroit; brought to life by black trans women themselves. In Episode One, the four friends just try to make it through the day without getting clocked as trans women — or clocking someone else over the head instead.
