“I never thought I’d live in a world where trans people would be celebrated,” Laverne Cox says in the trailer. “On or off the screen. I never thought the media would stop asking horrible questions and start treating us with respect.”

The documentary also features interviews with Chaz Bono, Angelica Ross, Lilly Wachowski, Alexandra Billings, Yance Ford, Trace Lysette and more.

“I think for a very long time, the ways in which trans people have been represented on screen have suggested that we’re not real, have suggested that we’re mentally ill, that we won’t exist,” Cox says. “And yet here I am. Yet here we are, and we’ve always been here.”
