WHAT’S T? DOCUFILM & BOOK PROJECT ANNOUNCES ONLINE CASTING CALLDETROIT, MI (January 16, 2017) – The “WHAT’S T? Exploring the Narratives of Transgender Women of Color in Detroit” Docufilm & Book Project is hosting an Online Casting Call with the launch of its Online Casting Call and Talent Application. The project is looking to capture the narratives, stories and experiences of thirty-five (35) transgender women of color of all ages that are native Detroits, current residents of Detroit or are from Detroit and living in other cities.
“Given the level of violence that trans women experience, compounded with the anti-trans rhetoric and trans bathroom bills popping up around the country, there is a critical need for a seismic shift in the way our sisters narratives are being told,” says John A. Trimble, who is executive producing and directing the project. “We recognize the enormous responsibility and challenge that comes with recording, capturing and presenting the narratives shared with us. We want to honor that responsibility by exceeding the challenge and creating this body of work that changes hearts and liberates minds.”
The WHAT’S T? Docufilm & Book Project invites any trans women of color in/from Detroit to apply and submit their information to be considered for the project. The Online Casting Call and Talent Application will be open from Tuesday, January 17 to Tuesday, January 31, 2017. The project will also be hosting a private CASTING CALL EVENT on January 31, 2017 where the project will be introduced, explained and presented to the community. Applicants will receive information about the event once their application is received
