From bathroom bills to terrifying reports of hate crimes, the media presents an alarming narrative about life for trans people in the United States. But what are the individual stories and experiences of American trans folks living their daily lives?

Trans filmmaker Tony Zosherafatain introduces us to four people who have been severely affected by Trump’s dangerous anti-trans and racist rhetoric. The director speaks to Ash, a trans teen in North Carolina; Rebecca, a trans Latina in Texas; Evonné, a trans woman and activist in Mississippi, and Shane, a Two-Spirit man in Idaho. Their different stories lay bare how a community survives and thrives amid hatred and fear.

Trans in Trumpland takes an intricate, inspiring road trip from State to State into the lives of four remarkable, resilient trans people.
