  • msmichel's rating of the film Take a Walk on the Wild Side

    Toronto's 'Wildside' has provided safe haven for over 25 years to more than one generation of cross dressers and transsexuals and Paddy Aldridge who runs it is an icon in the community. This short film, which would make an interesting documentary feature, gives just a glimpse of the services, respect and dignity offered even as it shares the sadder side of aging and mortality as well.
