We are immensely proud of our short film titled My Trans Body which we created as part of a social media campaign. The aim of the campaign is to celebrate what makes us trans, to make people feel better about themselves and their bodies, as trans people. Trans people are often made to feel such shame about their bodies and are held up to impossible standards based on normative ideas about bodies and expression — It is time that we acknowledge how far many of us have come, and that we celebrate all the things that makes our bodies trans.
We released the film on FB (where it’s getting the most traction) and on YouTube and worked with the talented techie trans women Amber Evans and Michelle Steele who created this Image Gen(d)erator where people can upload a photo add some text and download an image.
Currently, the hashtag #MyTransBody is trending on twitter, and people from all over the world have been contributing to the conversation. The entire campaign was created on a budget of nothing and we are so proud of what we have achieved, particularly in this climate of fear-mongering in the media.
