My last semester was real busy, mainly with this project for one of my classes which I would like to share. In my Media and Advocacy class we were tasked with making video with the purpose of advocated for an issue. We got to choose topics and I ended up in the Transgender Awareness group. It was both the topic that I had the most genuine interest in and I also did not really know that much about the challenges that the transgender community face. I think it was a topic of discovery for all of us in the group.
As a group of cis-gender individuals, we didn't take the task of portraying transgender issues lightly. What can we really say about the transgender community ... when none of us are transgender? We asked ourselves the question: What is it like to be transgender? This is what we came up with and I hope that you like it. We came in with minimal/to no video editing experience so I am pretty proud of how this came out.
