'Style Exposed' Trans Documentary
Robert Jason, the director tapped to produce Janet Jackson's upcoming documentary on the international trans community entitled 'Truth', produced this 2011 one chronicling the lives of four trans New Yorkers called 'Style Exposed: Born Male, Living Female'.
One of the things I didn't like about this documentary is that once again, the lone Black trans woman in it was the one who was A) an escort B) battling a drug addiction and C) living up to the many of the negative stereotypes we are saddled with.
