Just Gender puts a human face on the transgender community, and in doing so, challenges us to set aside our notions of what it means to be man or woman. Informative and straightforward, Just Gender seeks to counteract the ignorance that drives much of the discrimination experienced by the transgender community.
Interviewees include transgender individuals of all ages, races and backgrounds describing their personal stories, but also transgender and “straight” experts, including attorneys, a surgeon, psycho-therapists, and political leaders in the transgender community. By giving viewers a chance to see transgender people as individuals, the film explores the common myths and misunderstandings about transgender people.
Just Gender screened in over twenty cities across the United States, including several standing-room only audiences. Since then, Just Gender has been acquired by colleges and universities numbering in the hundreds. Since its release, several leading transgender educators have collaborated to help produce educational materials to accompany corporate training and high schools versions of Just Gender.
