A razor-sharp tongue is a great asset, but what happens when the people you cut are those closest to you? Razor Tongue deftly navigates the calling out—and the being called out.

Whether sitting through a floundering Tinder date or a terrible job interview Belle calls out microaggressions and bad behaviour from men whenever she sees it. But when someone turns the tables on her in public, she begins to wonder about how effective public shaming actually is.

There has been ample talk recently about the call-out culture, especially in LGBTQ2S+ communities, and Razor Tongue—a new web series from Rain Valdez of Transparent—cuts to the heart of the issue.

All seven episodes of Razor Tongue will screen in this program.
