“BECOMING MORE VISIBLE”— Varied Lives/Varied People


Varied Lives/Varied People

Amos Lassen

One of the documentaries that you will be hearing a lot about is “Becoming More Visible”. It gives us an insightful look at the varied lives and challenges of four fearless young adults. We meet “Sean, a transgender male comedian from a small affluent town in upstate NY; Katherine, a Bangladeshi transgender girl from a close-knit Muslim family; Olivia, who leaves everything behind entering the shelter system in order to be the woman she knows she is; and the unforgettable Morgin, a fully transitioned woman pursuing her musical ambitions”. The stories of the four come together in remarkable ways and this is a groundbreaking look at the transgender community. The stories are

“intercut with experts working in the transgender space: doctors, psychologists, social workers, activists, and writers like Andrew Solomon, whose book ‘Far From the Tree’ tells the stories of parents who “not only learn to deal with their exceptional children but also find profound meaning in doing so.”
