Bradley (them / they) has recently joined The Order of Perpetual Indulgence – an LGBTQ+ protest group who use religious imagery, drag, and activism to call attention to sexual intolerance. The group has provided Bradley with a supportive community and a social purpose. As someone who has struggled with their own gender identity for years, Bradley now identifies as non-binary, neither male or female – but is aware that this identity is not fully recognised by wider society or the state. Bradley now has two events approaching: their wedding to long-term partner, Emma, and their ordination as ‘Black Veil’ – the highest level within The Order of Perpetual Indulgence. Will these two events give Bradley the confidence to step out into the world as the authentic version of themself?
This film was made as part of the Right Here scheme in collaboration with BBC Scotland and Screen Scotland.
