Mainstream trans media is so often focussed on the negatives of living outside of the binary, this shorts package seeks to disrupt that cycle and be a breath of fresh air.

Transmasculine cowboys, Brazilian ballroom houses, candour-filled confessionals, steamy dreams, oh my! These films serve as a reminder of all the beautiful moments of affirmation and euphoria found by living your most authentic life. Trans is beautiful – you know it, I know it, so let's celebrate it!
