Undocumented. Veteran. Adoptee. Disabled. Politician. Opera singer. Small business owner. Person of color. These shorts remind us that being trans is just one aspect of a much more complex story.

MEZZO 

Nicole Opper; 2015; USA; 14 min.; in English, with English subtitles 

African-American opera singer Breanna Sinclairé traces her earliest memories of self-knowledge and understanding while becoming the first openly transgender woman to graduate from a major conservatory.

I AM NOT YOUR INSPIRATION 1: NATHAN GALE 

Sandra Alland; 2013; UK; 8 min.; in English, with English subtitles 

Writer and photographer Nathan Gale discusses the intersection of their queer, trans, and crip identities. They also give the lowdown on “inspiration porn” (using disabled people or performers to make nondisabled audiences feel good about themselves).

AFUERA 

Steven Liang; 2016; USA; 14 min.; in Spanish with English subtitles 

This is an unsparing account of an undocumented transgender immigrant caught between love and identity.

UMBRELLA 

Rhys Ernst; 2017; USA; 16 min.; in English, with English subtitles 

Against the backdrop of the Trump presidency and told through the interwoven stories of four transgender individuals (a leader in trans rights in DC, the owner of a Philadelphia tattoo shop, an Army dad in rural Arkansas, and the creator of the transgender flag), UMBRELLA chronicles Americans united in their passion to create change.

COMING FULL CIRCLE 

Larry Tung; 2015; USA/Korea; 24 min.; in English and Korean with English subtitles
