Sookee – Of Seahorses and Closets“ is a multilayered and intimate portrait of Sookee, a famous queer-feminist Hip Hop Artist and left-wing activist in Germany. She fights against sexism, homophobia and racism – in german society and, especially, in german hip-hop for years now. Tolerance and love instead of discrimination and stereotyping. Diversity instead of binary thinking. Seahorses instead of closets.
