“The Making of The Glades Project.” By Connie M. Florez

We begin with the Glade Show Lounge, located in the heart of Honolulu’s old Chinatown red light district. The billboard moniker read in brightly lit lights: Glade Show Lounge—Where Boys Will Be Girls. Through intimate life-story interviews, this documentary celebrates the creativity and resilience of a performance community of local Mahu—where genders blurred and ordinary boys became beautiful girls—and brings to light stories of their unseen struggles as a marginalized Pacific Island minority. Director Connie Florez will discuss the making of this film project that takes viewers deep into the body and soul of a hidden Honolulu.

Connie M. Florez is the director, producer, and historical researcher for The Glades Project. She has been involved with the production of a number of films that focus on crucial issues of local and global politics, identity, culture, gender, and community, including Kumu Hina, Restoring the Light, Moana Nui 2011, Princess Kaiulani, State of Aloha, Tongan Tatatau, and Ke Kulana He Mahu. She has also been involved with directing and screening the Honolulu Rainbow Film Festival. Connie currently serves as the CEO of Hula Girl Productions, an independent film and television company.
