The 6th and last episode of our docu-series We've Been Around, CAMP TRANS, premiered today exclusively on TheAdvocate.com. The series chronicles the lives of a few transgender pioneers in history, often untold. In CAMP TRANS, amid the punk ethics of 1990’s identity politics, trans activists Leslie Feinberg and Riki Anne Wilchins spearhead a movement to protest the trans-exclusionary policy of a women’s music festival.
Check out this beautiful, important film that we executive produced with Rhys Ernst and Jelayne Miles of 11B Production, directed by Elliot Montague, produced by Christine Beebe and written by Rosie Haber.
History of transgender people, like many minority groups, is too often lost or overlooked by the mainstream. Even moments of protest within the LGBT space, like the advent of "Camp Trans," deserve to be remembered, and that can require transgender people telling their own stories, say the creators of the“We’ve Been Around” video series.
