With a sharp comedic touch, Razor Tongue explores the complexities of manifesting self-love in a world filled with misogyny and discrimination. It centers on the experiences of Belle (writer and creator Rain Valdez), a trans woman who has zero tolerance for bullshit. Over the course of seven episodes, Belle uses her razor tongue to expose the toxic behavior of men she encounters, but when a podcast host named Ariel (Alexandra Grey of Transparent) invites Belle to be a guest on her show, the tables turn in an unexpected and shocking way.
