America in Transition (AIT) is a documentary series and community engagement campaign that explores community, family, and social issues for trans people of color across the United States.
Director, André Pérez, founded the Trans Oral History Project seven years ago motivated by the isolation he felt growing up in a military family in Virginia. Join Pérez on his journey across the country to document real life for a daughter mourning her mom, a veteran seeking redemption, and woman fleeing Mexico after a friend is beheaded. AIT plans to release lesson plans for each episode that explore social issues in greater depth. Join him in the behind-the-scenes series on youtube as he travels and shoots AIT in 2017 leading up to the series release in November.
