Truth will follow the lives of transgendered people as they fight for equality.
See why we’re having a tiny lemon tart with our morning brew:
- Janet Jackson is set to lead a new documentary, titled Truth, about transgendered people around the globe. With production scheduled for this summer, Jackson will even do a few one-on-one camera interviews. “All people are very important to me,” said Jackson. “I’ve been fortunate to make friends and learn about very different lives. Truth is our small chance to ask that you try and understand someone who lives their life in a way that is a little different from yours, even though all of our hearts are the same. We want to stop the hate and find understanding.” [TGJ]
