Learn more about “Becoming More Visible,” from the filmmakers themselves:
Challenged by how to identify since early childhood, four fearless transgender young adults defy societal norms to be their true selves and become more visible.
No transition is easy but some are easier than others. We follow Sean, a transgender male comedian from a small affluent town in upstate NY, Katherine, a Bangladeshi transgender girl from a close-‐ knit Muslim family, Olivia, who had to leave everything behind and enter the shelter system in order to be the woman she knows she is, and the unforgettable Morgin, a fully transitioned woman pursuing her musical ambitions and making her way in the world.
BECOMING MORE VISIBLE showcases both male to female, and female to male trans kids. Each is at different phases in their transition and with different levels of familial support. We follow them and watch them grow into and become their true selves. BECOMING MORE VISIBLE also introduces avenues of support for this population.
