International Transgender Day of Visibility is an annual event occurring on 31 March which is dedicated to celebrating transgender people and raising awareness of discrimination faced by transgender people worldwide, as well as a celebration of their contributions to society.
Whilst Lesflicks is a website for lesbian and bisexual films, we are extremely trans-inclusive. We are proud to support trans filmmakers and also to support trans storylines.
So this Transgender Day of Visibility we have picked out three different pieces of content to focus on and raise awareness of from our platform.
Synopsis: In a generation built on texts, tweets, memes, and irony, what has become of the weight of our words? In what way does communication serve as a form of self-expression, and self-expression a form of communication? Mattioli Production’s upcoming documentary “Words” will explore how people navigate gender and identity in the open and evolving landscape of New York City. Using some if NYC’s most fluid scenes as a backdrop, Mattioli Productions will investigate how masculinity, femininity, and everything in between are contextualized in a range of environments, from the theatre world to early childhood education. Featuring exclusive interviews from a variety of artists, activists, icons, and innovators to be announced, “Words” promises to be a poignant and powerful tribute to the language we use to shape our identities.
