Authentically Us

Authentically Us: Voices from the Transgender Community is a three part virtual series about transgender people living in the American northwest. Their narratives relay the three key ideas; that transgender people should be able to live and work anywhere, and that transgender people have always been part of our communities.  The films were produced in partnership with Oculus VR for Good and Pride Foundation. The films have premiered and screened at over 10+ film festivals including Tribeca, SXSW, Cannes, The American Film Institute Docs, and Sheffield Doc/Fest.
