What does it mean to be transgender? How did the trans rights movement come about? What progress has there been made, and what is there still to be done? ABSOLUTELY TRANS gives us a detailed history of the trans movement, starting with the idea of America’s “self-made man”. ABSOLUTELY TRANS wants to address the way the trans community is counting on pop culture to advance its cause in the way it has done for other LGBT groups. The US aren’t the only place where things are changing however: from San Francisco and Los Angeles to Paris, Berlin and Cologne, this documentary gives viewers a variety of perspectives on the trans rights movement.Thanks to interviews with high-profile transgender people icons ABSOLUTELY TRANS aims to give a positive, fascinating and slightly quirky insight into the fight for transgender rights.
A new light on the trans rights movement, showing it for what it most surely is: a pop culture revolution.
