Paola, Betty and Eva are three trans* women in their 60s, who have known each other for more than 40 years. All three of them started making their living early in their youth as sex workers in Athens, Greece. In The Oleanders, Betty Vakalidou, Eva Koumarianou and Paola Revenioti revisit all different places in the city, where they used to work, socialise, get harassed or arrested by the cops, fight for their rights, have fun and find love. The unapologetic, humorous and empowering discussion of Eva, Betty and Paola is a history of Athens, as well as a history of sexualities in the Mediterranean region and beyond.
