Transilient x Transfigure Kickstarter

Kickstarter for our Short Docu Series

We have partnered with Transfigure print co along with various other artists, musicians, organizations, etc. to bring a ya’ll a Kickstarter packed full of goodies. Check out our kickstarter here. The video above was shot in Chicago, Illinois by our film team, James and Jay.

We believe that storytelling is a powerful and radical form of healing and can plant the seeds of restorative justice. Because of this, we partnered with a mental health education organization called Lost Got Found ( to create a documentary series that chronicles the experiences of trans people who face mental health issues on a daily basis in Appalachia. Seeing and hearing from those directly impacted by these issues provides audiences with a personalized connection to these stories and people. It is for this reason that we aim to complete this project through film above all other mediums. We plan to do our annual skill-sharing tour in the rest of the states in the main land of U.S where we haven't gone yet. 

Both of these travels will be pieces of a full length documentary about the people we meet and the work that Transilient does. We plan to release this work and send it to film festivals in an effort to change the narrative that surrounds trans and non-binary people in the media.
