"I think for a very long time, the ways in which trans people have been represented on screen have suggested that we're not real. That we don't exist.And yet here I am. Yet here we are, and we've always been here." - Laverne Cox via "Disclosure"

GLAAD revealed that 80% of Americans have not interacted with a person who identify as Trans. Therefore, many assumptions of Trans lives come from the media. This also can effect a person going through Gender Dysphoria where he/she may not be aware of the Transgender ideology.

In this new Sam Feder documentary you unlearn the problematic stereotypes as each writer, actress and activist share heartfelt perspectives of Hollywood's impact in the LGBT community.
