Portraits From The CommunityStreaming Video - 2011
If the challenges and complexities of a transgendered lifestyle are hard for some people to identify with, first-hand accounts of those experiences may be the best means of creating more understanding. This program features real-world portraits of individuals from the transgendered community-men and women describing for the camera what they've gone through and, in other scenes, going about their daily lives. Namoli Brennet, a singer-songwriter, talks about audience perceptions and overcoming barriers through music, while Daan Erikson, a student, reflects on awkward school experiences, compassion from a grandparent, and upcoming sexual reassignment surgery. Transgender activists Pauline Park and Mara Keisling also share their insights.
