"Are you male or female? For four young transgender adults this is not a simple question. Since early childhood, these four defied societal norms to be their true selves and become more visible. Sean is a trans male comedian from a small affluent town in upstate New York. Katherine is a Bangladeshi trans girl from a family steeped in their cultural traditions. Olivia had to leave her family in Atlanta and enter the shelter system in order to be the woman she knows she is. The unforgettable Morgin is a fully transitioned woman pursuing her musical ambitions and attempting to make her way in the world. Becoming more visible shines a humanizing light on their different stories to help ignite the awareness and understanding needed to put an end to the discrimination of transgender people."--Container.
