There Are Things To Do: a Celebration of the Life of URVASHI VAID ….. an extraordinary human being and a queer icon: a short film made by Ptown filmmakers Mike Syers and Fermin Rojas IT not only celebrates her life but also makes us very aware of how much she actually achieved to benefit the LGBTQ community globally. The documentary simply doesn’t have the time to list the many steps of her highly successful career or e\qually mind-blowing are the 13 very prestigious Awards that she was deservedly honored with. What does particularly shine through from the very first frame, is Vaid’s extraordinary sheer unselfishness …… and her joyous relationship with her wife and partner Kate Clinton.

The word icon is greatly overused in the LGBTQ+ community ……. and I believe Urvashi Vaid would hate being called one ….. but she is undoubtedly one. This is a must-see film for anyone who loves PTown and Urvashi Vaid
