Just Gender

Crew
Directed by George Zuber
Editor Bebe Neuwirth


Just Gender tackles the all too often misunderstood world of transgender. The film explores the common myths and misunderstandings about transgendered people, as well as the confusion between sexual orientation and gender identity as reflected in the rigid binary view of the world generally held by society. Just Gender also touches on the discrimination, hardships and brutality resulting from those misconceptions and prejudices, including the numerous deaths caused by hate each year. Through the stories of transgender individuals and their spouses, friends, and allies, the film explores the confusion, the isolation, and the fear felt by many transgender persons. It also reveals their growing awareness and acceptance, and ultimately their joy in blossoming comfort as transgendered persons.

Reviews

"Director George Zuber seamlessly weaves together important statistics and personal experiences in order tell a story we all desperately need to hear." E. Sansing, tagg magazine

"A compelling new documentary that...hopes to humanize the faces and experiences of those within the transgender community." - James Nichols, Huffington Post

"It's clear that there is a distance to go in educating the public about the diversity within the transgender community and the appropriate, respectful ways to talk about it...Activist and filmmaker George Zuber is meeting that challenge head-on with his new documentary Just Gender." -- Staff, Maria Shriver, NBC News

"Just Gender seeks to put a face to the often abstract idea that many associate with the word 'transgender,' focusing on the various experiences and challenges many trans people face regularly." - Parker Marie Molloy, Advocate.com

"There is a story of the triumph in many people's continuing journey toward gender congruity. One moment from an interview still resonates with me...: 'There is no greater reward than finding and becoming myself.' " - Johnny Jonte Boucher, Dallas News
