A Fish has also shown on cable television and at 15 film and video festivals throughout the US and beyond, garnering two first-place awards. Zaida received Chicago Foundation for Women’s Ripple Affect award as “a shining example of the triumph of women and girls when given the opportunity.” Sanabia has since been inducted to the Chicago LGBT Hall of Fame.
