It’s so refreshing to see filmmakers embracing digital media as a way to explore and share information on topics relating to marginalized groups. Though the digital format cannot reach all marginalized communities (most notably those without financial or time access to the internet), it is becoming more frequently used by activists to explain the complexities of gender and sexuality to a wider audience outside of academic, activist, and queer communities.
This is a very accessible video breaking down gender roles and gender identity produced by the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center of New York. Props for the inclusion of multiple trans people of color! If you’re unfamiliar with issues dealing with gender and sexuality, such as the differences between gender identity and sexual orientation, what gender roles are, or the definition of “genderqueer,” check this out.
