Justifications for mistreatment of trans women almost always focus around assumptions about how we have sex. These sexual stereotypes influence discussions around trans women’s rights, employment discrimination, media representation, violence, police harassment, and more. Yet considering how often trans women’s sexuality is discussed, it’s shocking how rare it is to hear from trans women themselves.
I’m putting together an erotic documentary that will focus on relationship and hookup dynamcis among trans women and their partners. Doing it Again: In Depth will weave together interview footage and with explicit sex scenes to create a complex portrait of each participant and the roles that relationships and sexuality play in their lives.
This ambitious project will include two volumes, one focusing on trans women with cis partners and one focusing on trans women with trans partners. But I’m going to need your help to make this a reality. If we can raise enough funds with the Kickstarter campaign, then we can create a third volume, focusing on genderqueer and non-binary folks.
In addition to raising funds, I’m looking for trans women (as well as trans female and trans feminine spectrum non-binary folks) and their partners who would like to be a part of this film. I’m especially looking for straight trans women, trans women with male partners (cis or trans), trans women of color, people of color in general, and people over 40. If you know anyone who might be interested, please point them to the Doing it Again: In Depth - Casting Application
Finally, I’m really excited about the opportunity to engage in a larger community conversation about these issues. As a part of this, I’ll be on Tristan Taormino’s new radio show Sex Out Loud on July 20th 5:00pm PST / 8:00pm EST. Mark your calendars and listen in live, or call in and talk with us (866-472-5788).
