Second Nature
U.S., 2024 | Documentary

Clownfish change sex from male to female. Bonobos, which are just as closely related to us as chimps, are matriarchal and also have same-sex sexual relationships. Debunking myths that females are “inferior” and being queer is somehow “unnatural,” Second Nature follows trans trailblazer and evolutionary biologist Joan Roughgarden and queer, female, BIPOC and immigrant scientists who explore the 1,500+ animal species that engage in same-sex sexual behavior and parenting, form matriarchies and more.

Digital, 53 min. Director: Drew Denny. With: Elliot Page, Joan Roughgarden, Patricia Brennan, Amy Parish, Joseph Graves.
