This week’s selection is The Most Dangerous YearThe Most Dangerous Year is an important documentary with a focus on families fighting against anti-transgender rights legislation.
This documentary is personal for director Vlada Knowlton.  Her youngest daughter was five years old upon coming out but started showing signs of being transgender two years earlier.  The director comments in the film that “it was a terrifying time for us.”  Struggling to accept their child’s gender identity was one thing but the next year proved to be even worse.
Not to get personal but HB2 in North Carolina forced me to come out on Facebook because it was the only place at the time where I could truly be myself.  You have to wonder what truly goes through the minds of people signing these ballot initiatives.  Do they ever stop to think about the harm they cause to someone that they’ve never met?
Capturing the perspective from families with transgender children, The Most Dangerous Year is a compelling documentary showing that transgender rights matter.
