Transgender Narrative Shorts
Tear Jerker, Ryans, Dear Abigail, Pronouns, The Women's Bathroom Project, Wajood

This collection centers on images of transgender and gender-nonconforming folks, celebrating the beautiful richness of self-discovery and the driving determination of living an authentic life. United States: In Tear Jerker, Elliot can't cry and he needs to. He's recently been dumped by his ex-girlfriend, who has decided she wants to exclusively date "real" men. In Ryans, a trans woman goes on a blind date with a man, but lingering similarities to an ex get in the way. In Dear Abigail, a transgender woman gets brutally attacked, only to be rejected by the woman who saves her. A teenager from the South Side of Chicago decides to reveal their true identity during a spoken word performance only to be interrupted by an uninvited guest in Pronouns. The Women’s Bathroom Project details a little girl's conversation with a transgender woman in a restaurant bathroom. United Kingdom: Growing up in 1950s England, Chris struggled to fit into the gender roles dictated by wider society; now a senior, he reflects on his life in Dusk. Silly Girl is about the first time you are noticed, the first time someone sees you for who you are, and the transformative nature of that moment. India: Wajood (Selfhood) revolves around a young hijra's (trans woman’s) life in Mumbai. When confronted by the elders of her community about her unrealistic expectations of romance, she goes on a subconscious quest to learn if somebody will ever fall in love with her.
