My Genderation is a film project that celebrates trans lives and trans experiences. The project was founded by Fox Fisher and Lewis Hancox after appearing on the mainstream documentary My Transsexual Summer that aired on Channel 4 in 2011. Feeling frustrated that their experiences weren’t portrayed authentically, they started to create films about the trans people around them.
They wanted to represent trans people authentically and without the voyeristic gaze of those that aren’t trans. This is the essence of what makes My Genderation unique – the fact that it is created entirely by trans people, about trans people, for everyone. It allows people to see more engaging, truthful and authentic representation of transgender people, and connect with them on a more human level.
Since then My Genderation has produced over 100 films, including My Trans Story for Channel 4 and New Genderation for the BBC and campaigns for Stonewall UK, I want Prep Now, CliniQ and more. Our award winning films are shown in film festivals across the world, and are widely used for educational purposes.
