SHORTS: TRUE TRANS SOUL REBEL

Fierce human conviction and unapologetic authenticity beat with a brilliant authority over this year’s dynamic collection of trans shorts, creating a powerful symphony of magnificent, multi-generational voices that lift our community high above the rising intolerance found at home and abroad. Together an Icelandic swimmer, a twentysomething photographer, a nervous parent, and a host of everyday heroes prove that there’s nothing more beautiful than living your truth.
