Lighthouse Queer Film Festival


Fri 7 Jun 2024

Directors: Jos Bitelli, Amy Pennington

Fun, satirical and a pastiche of the chaotic, brash, self-deprecating and clueless 1990s/2000s British reality TV, TOPS sees TV’s Amy Pennington delve into the lives of four individuals who’ve had TOP surgery in a desperate attempt for the presenter to make their first-ever trans friend.

These four interviewees include a power-lifter and gay-games Olympian hopeful, a housing-officer-come-actor, an Essex filmmaker, and an equality diversity and inclusion specialist-slash-occasional model.

They open up their lives and homes to the invasive, neurotic and yet lovable Amy Pennington. A genre-busting documentary which blends the real and the fiction, we’re drawn in by the question that defines trans masc experience, “What TOP did you wanna to wear after TOP surgery?”
