Her Story

With a narrative weight expected from a much lengthier format, the web series Her Story is an illuminating exploration of transgender identity with a total run time under 60 minutes. The show’s six episodes follow two trans women as they navigate relationships in Los Angeles, revealing complex characters defined by much more than their trans status. The characters seemingly achieve their authentic selves—as bartenders, lawyers, friends, partners—and as humans struggling, growing and searching for love. With the power to shift perspectives and reframe the conversation about transgenderism, Her Story is in the vanguard for trans representation through a media platform that easily allows for the continued creation of such original stories.
