Watch Disclosure on Netflix
Disclosure is an unprecedented, eye-opening documentary about transgender depictions in film and television, revealing how Hollywood simultaneously reflects and manufactures our deepest anxieties about gender.
Leading trans thinkers and creatives, including Laverne Cox, Lilly Wachowski, Yance Ford, Mj Rodriguez, Jamie Clayton, and Chaz Bono, share their reactions and resistance to some of Hollywood’s most beloved moments.
Grappling with films like Dog Day Afternoon, The Crying Game, and Boys Don’t Cry, and with shows like The L-Word, and Pose, they trace a history that is at once dehumanizing, yet also evolving, complex, and sometimes humorous. What emerges is a fascinating story of the dynamic interplay between trans representation on screen, society’s beliefs, and the reality of trans lives.
The webinar was recorded and is available to watch on Youtube (cc available) and on Queer Screen’s Facebook.
