On February 25, Topic will premiere Trans in Trumpland, a new four-part docu-series directed by trans filmmaker Tony Zosherafatain and executive produced by Trace Lysette (Transparent, Hustlers), alongside trans activists and influencers Major Griffin-Gracy and Chella Man.
The series follows Iranian-American director Zosherafatain on a journey deep into America’s heartland to interview four subjects about their experience being trans during the Trump administration’s bigoted and divisive reign of terror. Each episode focuses on a different trans person living in a conservative part of the country – Ash, a 13 year old trans boy in North Carolina, Rebecca, a Latinx trans woman in Texas, Evonne, a Black trans woman who runs Mississippi’s only transgender non-profit, and finally, Shane, a Native American Army vet in Idaho who was impacted by the trans military ban.
