Seven short portrait films that weave together spoken word and visual form to reflect the identity of individuals from the transgender and nonbinary community. These works transcend the negative stigma that has been the norm with the joy and power that is real and present throughout the community.
These portraits are a way to honor them and continue a tradition of bringing this community and the community at large together on Trans Day of Visibility in 2023, fostering mentorship and collaboration for years to come.
These works are part of a larger documentary, The Connie, which explores the struggles and triumphs of the people building an empowering narrative for the transgender and non-binary community in Los Angeles, through the Connie Norman Transgender Empowerment Center, the first of its kind in the world. The film shows us that it's okay to be unique, fearlessly express ourselves, and break out of our comfort zones. Our differences are something that should be celebrated, not kept hidden away.
