For the The Transgender Day Of Visibility.
This lyric video explores the performative nature of gender, the difficulties of navigating the legal system and finding a place where transgender people are protected as citizens against prejudice, discrimination and hate-motivated violence. By including transgender people who are of different races, ages, faiths, and stages in their transition this video showcases the huge spectrum that exists within the community.
All of the people included in this video are transgender. Transgender is defined as a person whose self-identity does not conform unambiguously to conventional notions of male or female gender. So some people in this video identify as femme and go by the pronouns they/them/theirs while others identify as women and go by the pronouns she/her/hers.
