Why You Should Watch HBO’s ‘Transhood’

by Tito W. James

In Transhood, a team of documentarians follow four families over five years and explore the triumphs and challenges of transgender kids. LGBTQ identity has come to the forefront of the conversation about American identity. Even as someone who’s had several close peers come out at transgender, I found the documentary to be eye-opening and necessary viewing.

There’s been a lot of misinformation and fear-mongering generated by the mere existence of trans individuals. Documentaries like Transhood are important in setting the record straight and showing the simple truth that transpeople are human beings. Everyone’s journey into adulthood and gender expression is unique and the more we understand each other, the more we can co-exist.

Transhood is now streaming on HBO Max.
