    There's no better backdrop than a closet to focus on the challenges of coming out as trans. Here, actor/writer/comedian D'Lo, of Sri Lankan descent, and Indian-born actor/dancer/healer Maya Jafer share their very different true stories.

    Trans advocate and therapist Valerie Spencer and trans teenager Lily Rubenstein don't let a few decades get in the way of understanding. As they travel throughout LA, visiting points of references from Spencer's personal herstory, the two are brought closer than they could ever imagine.

    Sometimes a person just needs a place to pee! No one knows that better than trans entertainer-activists Rocco Kayiatos and Mariana Mar. The duo reclaim public restrooms as gender neutral while cracking wise (and wisely) about the issues surrounding today's controversial bathroom politics.

    You wouldn't judge a book by its cover, yet the faux pas of public misgendering is far too common. Genderqueer Transparent alumni Mel Shimkovitz and Petey Gibson banter unabashedly on the importance of more inclusive, gender neutral language at popular destinations on LA's east side.

    For years, transgender women lived in fear of hanging out together, lest they become targets of violence. Here, artist/actor/decorator Van Barnes, comedic iconoclast Miss Barbie-Q and artist/filmmaker Zackary Drucker proudly and bravely bond in public, offering a glimpse of rarely seen transfeminine sisterhood.

Heartfelt, gentle, and informative
These short segments made me feel seen and also brought up some of the issues I think about or navigate on an everyday basis. May try sharing it with people in my life.

Well Produced
In short films each person is able to tell their personal story from the heart....it is very sad when families reject.

Very brief, very moving
I'd recommend this short docu-series for anyone; it's excellent... as a trans person, I found it realistic, to the point but gentle, as well as very moving. I will watch this again, for sure.
